PLAIN CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Residents in one Plain City neighborhood tell ABC 4 News the city and mayor Jay Jenkins continue to ignore them and their flooding concerns.
We were first to tell you about this story
three weeks ago. Since then no progress has been made and the city has done nothing to address the problem.
"Nothing," said resident Kylie Geilmann. "No phone calls have been returned. This is a disaster and a mess and this needs to be cleaned up."
You see, Kylie and her husband, Clint, along with their neighbors want to know why their homes continue to flood during rain storms. More importantly, they want to know who's fault it is. Damage to the Geilmann's home is up around $12,000 and not one person in the neighborhood has been able to get an answer from Plain City.
"And that's all we would want...is to have somebody just talk to us and let us know what's going on and what can be done," said Geilmann.
ABC 4 News called mayor Jenkins and left him a message. He has yet to return our call. Meanwhile, the frustration continues to grow among residents dealing with this problem.
"I know for us and our whole neighborhood, people don't leave their house if they know a storm is coming," said Geilmann.
So what's the next step in this process for neighbors? Well, if the city and Jenkins keep ignoring them, lawyers will soon enter the picture.
"I'm thinking they're just hoping we go away," said Geilmann. "But this isn't going away and it's not going to be ignored."
Residents may once again voice their concern on this issue at Thursday night's city council meeting. However, as of tonight, if you look at the agenda
for the meeting, this matter does not appear to be a topic of discussion.
