One of the main topics of discussion at Tuesday night's Richmond Hill City Council meeting was the street. flooding that occurred over the Labor Day holiday. 

In a last-minute addition to the agenda, Mayor Richard Davis invited city manager Mike Melton to the podium to discuss a study that the two conducted over the weekend along with engineers from Carter and Sloop.

Melton said he and Davis visited every neighborhood in the city during what they called the heaviest rainfall since 1994. They said it was a unique opportunity to see first-hand how the city's drainage system performed in extreme circumstances.

Melton said not one home was flooded and virtually all the water ran off the city streets in due time.

Other issues regarding this and other topics were discussed during the course of the meeting. See the full story in this weekend's edition of the Bryan County News.
