The flood control district had expected to receive a house count of the homes that would be affected by the rate increase at Friday’s meeting that was being provided by 39 Degrees North. But there was a mistake in the report that was presented.
“They provided us a report, but they did not use the parameters that we asked to be set,” said flood control district Executive Secretary April Smith. “What they provided us with is every property in Clark County, and what we need is all of the properties inside the flood wall.”
She said a new report from 39 Degrees North is expected in about a week.
The flood control district board asked Flood Control Superintendent Mike Lanham to attend the city council’s next meeting, to which he agreed that he would.
Moore said he will not be at the meeting because he will be out of town. He added that it wouldn’t matter if he did attend.
“Whether I show up or don’t show up, [the council is] milking this for all its worth and nothing I do is going to change it,” he said.
