Storm water topic for city committee

The Glencoe City Council heard an update from John Rodeberg of Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), Inc., on the central storm sewer project and the possible options to alleviate flooding near Judd Avenue and First Evangelical Lutheran Church at its finance committee meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 24.
Rodeberg answered a few more questions the City Council members had about the central storm sewer project design.
One of the largest concerns a few of the City Council members have is the route that the proposed storm sewer will take. Many of the most viable options laid out by SEH include 90-degree turns which, according to council members Milan Alexander, Allen Robeck and Cory Neid, seem unnecessary. Rodeberg reminded the City Council that SEH has mapped out a total of eight different options with the pros and cons of each one with the goal of finding the best option for the city’s objectives while also staying cost efficient.
The City Council asked Rodeberg to explain again why the pond to the west of the Glencoe City Center cannot be used as an additional pond.
“In order to make that work, that pond has to be 16 feet deeper than it is now,” said Rodeberg.
