Councilman Jones to hold meeting on flooding issues in the Richmond South Central 9th Voter District
                                                        
WHAT          Richmond, Virginia - The Honorable Michael J. Jones, Councilman, Richmond City Council, Richmond South Central 9th Voter District, will hold a meeting to discuss flooding issues in the Richmond South Central 9th Voter District.

                              "Flooding has been an ongoing problem in the Ninth District, and it will continue to happen as heavy rains and serious storms become more frequent due to the increasing global temperature," says Councilman Jones. "Water often stands needlessly for days after it rains and flooding has blocked neighborhood roads off completely and this negatively impacts the health, safety, and quality of life of our families; creates fetid breeding areas for mosquitoes and disease; and, makes hazardous and challenging transportation routes. We need to fix this."

                              "I am strongly committed to building, fixing, and improving streets, curbs, gutters, roads, sidewalks, alleys, and infrastructure in the Ninth District and I need my fellow residents to join me in advocating for these necessary improvements," says Councilman Jones.

                              "I want all Ninth District residents to come out and share how flooding has adversely impacted their lives, ask questions, bring photos and videos, and receive answers," says Councilman Jones. "Now is the time to speak, listen, learn, and be heard and I hope I can count on everyone to join me in taking a leadership role in addressing this important issue on behalf of all our Ninth District families, friends, and visitors," says Councilman Jones.

                              Councilman Jones will be joined by Mr. Calvin Farr, Director, and Mr. Howard Glenn, Deputy Director of Operations, for the Richmond Department of Public Utilities.

WHEN          Tuesday, July 9, 2019
