Flooding at the Park

By  | 

Panama City officials are looking into some solutions to flooding problems at Henry Davis Park. People who live nearby say heavy rain engulfs the park and gets into people's homes.

Neighbors brought the issue to commissioners at their last meeting. The city could build a larger drainage pipe, but that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Instead, some city officials think there may be a cheaper option.

"If we want a park in the area, if the emphasis is really on the park, then we should see what it takes to move it over to the next street, buy some property, and then you'd have a park that you could use rain, shine, sleet or snow," says Commissioner Jonathan Wilson.

Wilson will bring up his ideas at Tuesday evening's meeting at 5 p.m.
