Sharpsburg couple seeks flooding fix

April 05, 1999

SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg resident Bob James is tired of his sidewalk serving as a spillway for rain coming down the street.

It's been that way ever since the Maryland State Highway Administration redesigned Main Street in 1997.

On Monday night James asked Town Council members for their support as he and his wife prepare to meet on Monday with a highway official about the problem.

The couple will ask to be reimbursed for flooding and mud damage to their furnace and summer furniture, which were in the basement.

They also want the handicap ramp moved so rainwater doesn't flood into their basement, James said.
