BOCC approves MOU for Americus Ditch repairs

“We have no problem with that,” Rish said. “We are going to look at the five locations to provide a methodology for fixing the other areas. We need to get a cross section of what is going on.

“I know there are problems there, big problems.”

Preble Rish has agreed to provide dollars for materials needed to fix all areas of the pipe and to come back to the county with a final report on the best method for addressing the problems.

Left unresolved is who picks up the tab for fixing the remainder of the project.

That led to some tense exchanges.

Rish said he believed the issue was less about Preble Rish and more about him.

“This is a Ralph Rish issue for four or five people in this county,” he told the board, adding that Bryan was “carrying the water” for those individuals.
