Sanitary Board Working on Clogged Storm Drains

Huntington Mayor Steve Williams told Huntington City Council Monday, Feb. 24, that the Huntington Sanitary Board has already started clearing storm drains. In his state of the City address, Williams announced a proposal to consolidate the Stormwater and Floodwall Divisions with the HSB to streamline operations.

The consolidation eliminates the need for a stormwater "start up" fee, Williams said in the address.

Williams said that six basins were cleared last week.

Residents with clogged basins are requested to contact their council member, who have been asked to develop a priority list for cleaning.

The Mayor announced that code enforcement issued 1,726 citations from July 1 to Dec. 31, 2013. Previously only 100 had been issued, Williams said.

During January 2014, 183 citations were issued. Of those104 were junk/rubbish related.

"Except the pace of issuance to pick up as Spring (arrives)," he said.

The 2014 Huntington in Bloom campaign is already in the planning stage.
