The obvious source of the West End’s stormwater drainage problems is the gigantic earthwork supporting the Interstate highway. Take out the Interstate, and replace it with a Galligan canal, and — voila!

$6 million bond, drainage topic of public forum in New Albany; Coffey pushing for more west end improvements, board says work based on plan, by Daniel Suddeath

NEW ALBANY — Residents will be given the opportunity to speak about drainage and a proposed $6 million loan for New Albany stormwater projects during a public meeting Wednesday.

New Albany City Councilman Dan Coffey — who has been outspoken in his criticism of the stormwater master plan that is being used to determine the projects — said he’s hosting the forum so residents can have input before a vote is taken on the bond.

“There’s real questions about the way the stormwater [utility] has operated, and also their supposed engineering study, and I want the people to have a chance to speak,” Coffey said Friday.

He pledged to host three public meetings in the coming weeks across the city, as the first one will begin at 6 p.m. in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Library.
