Members call program essential to mitigate flood damage

Members of the Board of Directors of the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) Board of Directors recently presented the City of Cassville with a $50,000 check toward the creation of a computer program to model water flow hydraulics in the city.

The project is being developed by HDR Engineering and Anderson Engineering.

The program will be an essential planning and development tool in the city's efforts to mitigate future flood damage along Flat Creek and other creeks through the business district and other flood-prone areas of the city.

The IDC commends Cassville Mayor Bill Shiveley, and City Administrator Steve Walensky, who have worked with the IDC for the past two years to initiate the project.

"The IDC is committed to working with our local industries, businesses and city officials to make Cassville a great place to do business," said IDC Chairperson Stan Kelley. "This is a big step in our future plans for development and growth in our business district and Cassville."
