Karen Sunday was at the meeting still complaining about the progress of the Emerald Acres drainage issues. She doesn’t think that anything is being done quickly enough and didn’t seem to care that Robert Fisher has been diligently working on the project. Robert has been in contact with Scott Strahley from RCAP. The weather is also been a factor. A camera cannot be run down tile if it is full of water.
