An elderly Lynch resident, Lorene Clark, attended a recent meeting of the Lynch City Council asking the city for help in restoring sewage services to her rental property on First Street after work was done by Akins Excavating and Leo Miller and Associates. The rental property is being occupied by Renee Melton.
“I talked to Paul Miller this week and he was supposed to be here this week to dig it up and fix it,” said maintenance supervisor Chris Adams.
Mayor Johnny Adams said someone has to be responsible and repair the problem of raw sewage spilling out onto the ground.
Clark showed the council a stack of bills she has incurred trying to correct the sewage problem.
Chris Adams said he had talked to Paul Miller (with Leo Miller and Associates) and he told him “they will be responsible for everything and make it right.”
Attempts to contact Paul Miller for a comment were unsuccessful.
