Flooding of the Clear Fork river has evolved from something that happens once every several decades, to several times a year. And Bellville Mayor Darrell Banks wants to create the Clear Fork Watershed Subdistrict to find a way to reduce, if not prevent, the damaging overflows. Banks asked the Richland County Commissioners Thursday morning for a resolution supporting his effort. Lexington Mayor Gene Parkison attended the meeting to support Banks, because the water flows south. The common pleas court judges in the 18 counties that make up the Muskinghum Watershed Conservancy District will decide in June whether to approve creating the Clear Fork Subdistrict. Voters in the subdistrict would then consider a levy to fund a flood-prevention project.
