Jackson Co. Commissioners To Go Ahead With Vallonia Flood Plan

Last updated on Thursday, October 24, 2013

(VALLONIA) - Jackson County is going ahead with plans to ease flooding in Vallonia despite failure to gain federal funding for the second time.

The Seymour Tribune reports that county commissioners plan to tackle the project with local funds and work crews, which will mean a slower pace toward completion.

County Highway Superintendent Warren Martin told commissioners that the county still has a $6,500 grant from the Community Foundation of Jackson County and that those funds could be used to buy land for a retention pond on the east side of State Road 135 at Vallonia.
