Flood suit plaintiffs ask for ruling


Aug. 16, 2013 —

Kentucky League of Cities, Inc., was given a second set of interrogatories and request for production of documents in April, filed April 16. 

According to the original complaint filed in April 2012, the property owners claimed the City of Olive Hill failed to properly maintain its sewage and/or storm water drainage systems which were a major factor in causing the floods of May 2, 2010, and July 21, 2010.

They also said the city excavated dirt, rock and sediment from in and around the Tygart’s Creek channel in 2003 which altered the flow of water and added to the downtown flooding.
