Following the October 2017 flood, staff received several concerns from residents in the 400 block of Colfax. These are some of the same folks whose homes were damaged in the April 2013 flood and in other floods prior. On February 5, 2018 the Village Board authorized the study of the Park Avenue detention basin. The purpose of the study is to discover potential public/private actions that may minimize future flood damage to the homes on Colfax.
Up to date information will be posted on this page as the Village proceeds forward with the study.
