Richland County's flooding problem continues to be addressed by CODA, short for County Organizations for Disaster Assistance. The group held its quarterly meeting Wednesday morning, to announce a community forum will be held to discuss flooding in Mansfield, and to review flood-prevention progress that's been made in Shelby. The community forum is November 21st at 10am at First Christian Church at 200 West Third Street in Mansfield. CODA does not expect to ever eliminate flooding, but keeping high water manageable and reducing damage is certainly a goal. The Richland County Commissioners, and mayors of Mansfield, Shelby, and Bellville have met twice with officials of the Muskinghum Watershed Conservancy District and Army Corps of Engineers to lay the groundwork for a flood mitigation program.
