Currie neighbors say the county needs to help

Monday, August 25th, 2014

CURRIE, NC (WWAY) — The rain we have seen lately has really stuck around for folks in one Pender County neighborhood, right in their front yard. One neighbor, Ray Webber says it’s time for the county to step up and do something about their flooding problem.”We’re citizens we pay taxes and they should help,” Webber said. He suggests they fix the drainage system in the lake that’s overflowing and causing issues. But the problem is, it’s not the county’s problem. That’s according to emergency management system director Tom Collins. He says since it’s private property, they can’t touch it. But neighbors are not accepting that as an answer.”That shouldn’t be an excuse,” Webber said. “Even though the lake is private property, the roads are basically public”But what they say makes it frustrating is… neighbors aren’t sure of exactly who owns the lake. “I just know him by Drew,” Webber said. Neighbor Robert Farrow says the house sitting on the property with the lake should be condemned, saying it’s not just an eyesore, it’s dangerous. “Kids go in there and play. We try to tell them not to,” FarrowThe lake overflow brought fish right into these folks front yard. Webber says the problem is just to big for them to handle on their own, so the county should step in and fix it.Still0824_00001.jpg
