In Merrillville, residents of Southmoor Park subdivision are invited to a second public meeting on a drainage improvement project. During a recent Region News Makers interview, Merrillville Stormwater Utility Executive Director Matt Lake says the focus for this meeting will be to continue to gather input from residents to see if they need to tweak the plans to meet the needs of those who reside there. Lake says there are a lot of old neighborhoods in Merrillville that when they were originally constructed didn't entail provisions for stormwater management because the requirements weren't there at that time.
The meeting takes place at 6pm, in the Merrillville Town Hall Council Chambers. To hear more of our Region News Makers interview with Merrillville Stormwater Utility Executive Director Matt Lake, and Darren Olson of Christopher Burke Engineering, visit http://regionnewsteam.com/
