Studies aim to prevent flooding

Franklin is spending more than $165,000 to study drainage in the city in an effort to prevent future flooding around creeks and ditches.

City board of works members hired an engineer to do two studies for the city, including reviewing some suggestions and requests made by a group of downtown business owners.

Both projects will be paid for with stormwater funds, which come from a $5-per-month fee charged to city property owners.
