I went to New Fredrick St. during the rain and after 8+ years as the dictator, Leighton still hasn't done squat about the flooding there. Here's a slideshow from September 2010.
And some new pictures from today.
Even though there are several businesses on that street, Leighton doesn't care. If it's not 'HIS' downtown or Barney Farms then it doesn't matter to him.
I wonder if Leighton is ignoring the problem because Citywide towing is on this street?
This should runoff into a creek about 30 yards away. But that creek is so overgrown that it backs up. This was supposed to be taken care of back in 2007.
"On Saturday, those elected officials made another pledge to control flooding by replacing every bridge and rebuilding walls and the natural bed channel along the entire length of the creek -- a span of about 5 miles." (Oct 21, 2007) The Times Leader.
We were supposed to get $50 million. $11.2 million went into the rebuilding of the 4 bridges. I STILL haven't found out what happened to the rest of the money. It didn't go into the creeks. Where is the other $38.8 Million?
