After facing yet another Biblical-level rain event, many Franklin resisents are dealing with wet basements and other damage (I got nailed pretty bad in 2008, but was spared this time around).
The city is working to gather information on where damage occurred. Here's a note from 3rd District alderman Kristen Wilhelm:
REQUEST FOR WATER DAMAGE INFORMATION
The Fire Chief has made note in an email of a few of the damaged areas he has been made aware of. I have heard from some of you. However, I am looking for a more accurate assessment of water damage in the 3rd District so I can pass this information along to him.
If you live in the area bounded by 27th, Drexel, 51st and College and had water damage from the July 22nd rainfall, please send me an email with your home address and the extent of the damage.
Example: 1234 W. Waterway (water in basement).
Also, you may want to report damage on the County’s Emergency Management hotline by calling 211. This information is used to assess damage and aid to the area.
If you require a reply, please be patient as I have received many calls and emails in the past few weeks.
Please forward this to your neighbors that may not be on this email list. Those outside the 3rd District that requested to be on my email list may want to contact their individual alderman.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
3rd District Alderman
City of Franklin
