Franklin officials deluged with stormwater complaints

After a heavy rain, the water pooling around a Franklin woman’s home is like a moat.

There are no stormwater drains in the small Hezekiah McKinney subdivision where Mary Gent lives. Her home is the lowest in the neighborhood, so water either floods around her house or into a farm field to the north. Her property was flooded Wednesday after heavy downpours.

“I’m getting dumped on all the time,” Gent said. “In the swell between our homes, it pools. It’s full right now.”
