City of Cortland Looking To Mitigate Flooding In Prone Areas


The City of Cortland is looking to address flooding issues in parts of the city that have been prone to flooding with major rain events.

Most complaints from residents, says the city, have come from the Hickory Park, Kellogg Road and Forrest Avenue areas.

Cortland Mayor Scott Steve has proposed conducting a study to develop an engineering report for the city to use toward mitigation of residential stormwater complaints.

At Tuesday’s Common Council meeting his idea for the study was accepted. A Request for Proposals for an engineering report will be issued.

There was no timeline as to when the study would be conducted or if and when the flooding mitigation project would start.
