Two Crossville citizens came before the City Council on Tuesday evening with grievances about their property being destroyed. The citizens stated that a sewer line had been installed under their driveways in previous years and after the heavy rain we received on May 19, 2013, their driveways were damaged by flooding, to the point they were inaccessible. The residents were unable to move forward because they were told by city employees that it was the residents' responsibilities to fix the damage, but they can't do so according to the Code of the City of Crossville. This code states that they can't obstruct city property, including the sewer lines installed under their driveways. City Mayor J.H. Graham III stated that the issue would be made a top priority and taken care of.
