Thomasville-  Thomasville's Washington Villas Condominium residents bring storm drainage concerns to city council.  Bobby Dollar presented council members with pictures of last years storm damage at Washington Villas.

He told council it's been a year since storm waters poured into the yards and homes of residents and nothing's been done. Dollar was concerned about comments from City Manager Steve Sykes but council seemed responsive.

"He's automatically saying that he doesn't think anything's wrong with it and doesn't think he's going to do anything about it. That concerns me because he's an employee of the city and the city commissioners looked like they were being positive about it," said Bobby Dollar, Concerned citizen.

Dollar has requested the results of two engineering surveys the city performed on the intersection of Washington and Young.
