City Council to introduce flood prevention ordinance
(2008-01-15)
(WOUB) - The Athens Flood Plains Task Force thinks flooding is a bigger potential problem than most people think, and is asking City Council to take preventive action.

It's a recommendation which councilmembers are taking seriously.

The Task Force leader outlined specific proposals last night and afterward Council Planning and Development Committee Chair Debbie Phillips said an ordinance will be introduced at the next full meeting.

The ordinance would change three sections of the Athens City Code with the idea of reducing the risk of damage from flooding.
