PLEASANT VIEW -- Councilman Michael Humphreys recently said he has again been contacted by the Barker family requesting the city clean the pond on their property.
"We were going to look at the agreement we had with them. They're getting impatient," Humphreys said. "There is no doubt the silt is coming from public water."
Humphreys said when the state did mitigation for 2700 North, it built a channel. He said it could probably be cleaned in a day using a trackhoe.
City Administrator J.J. Allen said he wanted to look into the matter because he wasn't certain it's the city's responsibility.
"Why not?" said Humphreys. "It's public water going in there."
Allen said he did not want to upset the Barkers, but also did not want to just jump right in.
Mayor Doug Clifford said, "If it just costs a couple of thousand, then let's just do it."
