Robin Good presented the council with some photographs of her drainage issues at her residence.

They have a large intake that is constantly full of leaves and debris. The council noted city code states the property owner is responsible for maintenance of the parking and will not remove the trees. Chad Thede suggested some ideas to help with the drainage issues.
