Flooding response was disappointing

Dear Editor,

I just want to say how disappointed I am with the Village of Westfield when we had the flooding. I live on Nichols Avenue and not one person came to our door with a foot of water cresting at our doorstep to ask if we needed help getting to dry land. My 84 year-old father was up here on vacation and staying with me.

The water was coming up over the road from a creek across the street from our property. I have a sewer grate in my yard and it was spewing water 2 feet in the air, causing two rivers of water going into my back yard. Our front yard was a lake and our side yard was a raging river that would have easily taken my dogs with it if they had gone outside. I also had 13 inches of water flood my garage completely, ruining things that will be out-of-pocket expenses.

If there were a way to rectify this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Contacting the village has been at a standstill since we had flooding a year ago. Nothing has been done to help our situation. I am done with the flooding!
