Flood prevention plans outlined
Mayor Richard Daley and top aides met Tuesday with community leaders who sought guarantees that flooding would be ended in their neighborhoods. City officials outlined plans for a $64 million pilot program, announced last week, that will include installation of an anti-flooding system across nearly 12,000 acres of the Southwest, West and Northwest Sides.
After the meeting, Wayne Strnad, a Northwest Side property owner, questioned the effectiveness of the system as well as the city’s decision not to include the Belmont-Cragin area in the pilot program. But he expressed satisfaction that Daley is willing to work with the groups.
