Discussion of Mill Race. Investigation by City Engineer Gary Tressel revealed there was no contract between the City and Lehman Investments regarding the maintenance of the Mill Race as claimed by Robert Roth. The City is only responsible for the maintenance of storm sewer system itself. City Manager and Gary Tressel met with Robert Roth and Councilwoman Peg Roth on site to inspect the work that had been completed and address Mr. Roth's claim the City was required to do more. Given findings by Gary Tressel the City now considers this matter is closed.
