CENTRAL- Central officials will update residents about ongoing drainage projects, and residents will have a chance to share their opinions during a meeting Monday evening.

City leaders say their master plan is already underway. The drainage plan is an effort to combat rising water in the area. The city recently wrapped up its $4 million projects to clean out canals, ditches, and culverts taking out over 1,500 tons of vegetation and debris.

The master plan is expected to be completed by the end of the summer, according to Mayor Junior Shelton, but the public hearing is to see what homeowners are facing on a daily basis and what works for each property.

Some homeowners are seeing progress with drainage projects across the city, while others are still waiting for results of their own. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at Central Middle School.
