(WBRZ News 2) The Mayor of Central, Junior Shelton, is coordinating a plan to clean the ditches and culverts in the city.
According to city officials, the plan will combine the $4.7 million drainage fund and the $2.6 million emergency fund. Officials say Mayor Shelton was scheduled to travel to Washington D.C. this week to discuss the August flood and FEMA, however the trip has been canceled in order to prioritize the plan.
The mayor has begun working with firms to complete a plan and ensure that the city is in compliance with state statuses. More information about the plan will be released at a later time.
