Mayor Steve Williams said "construction plans are being formulated" for the city's prioritized flood plagued areas. The new Water Quality fee goes into effect October 1. In no specific order, these are priority fixes: the viaducts, Third and Fifth Avenues, Arlington Park and Stanford Park .
Williams reported that from Feb. 1 to July 1, the Huntington Sanitary Board cleaned 97 catch basins. Since July 1, The Sanitary Board has cleaned 21 catch basins and repaired five others.
The Sanitary Board is in the process of hiring a laborer to operate a second vacuum truck, which will be dedicated solely to cleaning catch basins.
Once the second vacuum truck is operational, the Sanitary Board anticipates it will be able to clean 18-25 catch basins per week. It is expected to take approximately 1-1 ½ years to clean all catch basins in the city during the first cycle.
