Who Foots The Bill For Flooding?

If water run-off from city-owned property is flooding people's basements, who's responsible for taking care of the problem?

Common Councillor Bill Farren raising that concern about common council after receiving a letter from a citizen who has had to take time of work to deal with flooding and furnace issues.

City Manager Pat Woods has been asked to come back with a report. He says there's been a lack of clarity over who owns the fire lanes and the report should clear that up, and also determine who should clean up any mess.
