Frustrated Tenant Seeks Answers From City

A Millidgeville man fed up with the flooding situation at his apartment complex is looking for answers from the city. 

Doug James of 10 Charlie Grace Terrace says his superintendent has been struggling to keep rain and melting snow from flooding the building, which is located just a few feet away from a sloping hill. 

The tenant says a few weeks ago the superintendent had to dig a big trench to try and contain the water and describes the middle of the parking lot as looking more like a skating rink this winter.

In a letter directed to Mayor Mel Norton with Councillors Gerry Lowe and Donna Reardon copied, James says he wants to know why the building was built where it was without considering proper drainage and what MetCap is going to do to provide a long-term solution to the problem.
