Icy Reception May Lead To Ice Jams

January 11, 2013 Town of Jackson No Comments

Residents of Jackson living along Flat Creek may find that their concern for their lawns may backfire, leading to potential damage to homes and businesses caused by flooding resulting from ice dams on the creek.  The Town of Jackson had sent out letters to property owners along the creek to obtain permission to drive across yards in order to access the creek with heavy equipment and remove ice impeding the creek’s flow.  However, by the beginning of this month, few responded.  Consequently, lacking legal access to the creek, the town determined it will not be able to perform that ice removal this year if necessary and mitigate possible flooding.  In a letter to those homeowners, Mayor Mark Barron pointed out that the town had also sought to drill four thaw wells to inject warm water into the creek to retard the formation of the ice, but not being granted access through homeowners’ yards, could not pursue that mitigation either.  Barron says Town Council will again discuss the situation at its January 22nd meeting and is encouraging the homeowners affected to participate in those discussions.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
