Mayor David Perkins says Morehead officials know a major project will need to be dealt with sooner or later.
They are trying to figure out how to get the city’s 80-year-old storm sewer system renovated. Every time a heavy downpour hits the area, the system gets backed-up and floods Morehead’s streets.
According to Perkins, the city doesn’t have the cash for upgrading the storm sewer system…an effort that he believes would cost at least one million dollars…
According to Perkins…another major problem is the incomplete maps of Morehead’s storm sewer system, which are preventing the city from pinpointing where the major problems are. He says it would cost about $100,000 dollars just to get that diagnostic work done.
