Commissioners Approves Easement For Neighborhood

Smith County Commissioners approved a drainage easement for the Gresham Oaks Subdivision during their meeting Monday.

The subdivision has been prone to flooding problems in the past. Back in May, KLTV reported the story of homeowner Jan Tomlinson. Her home was flooded twice in less than 10 months.

She called a county engineer who decided work could be done to divert water runoff around her home. Commissioners hope the easement will take care of all the homeowners' flooding issues.
