Meeting to discuss drainage in Lealman

LEALMAN — County officials have scheduled a workshop Wednesday to discuss drainage issues in this unincorporated area. The workshop will take place during the monthly meeting of the Lealman Community Association.

Drainage problems are longstanding in the Lealman community, particularly in the area between 34th Street and 37th Street, said Ray Neri, LCA head. Drainage there, as in much of Lealman, consists of steep, open ditches along narrow streets that make it difficult for two vehicles to pass.

If fire or emergency trucks are called to the area, Neri said they have to park in the middle of the street and block traffic because there is no way for firefighters or paramedics to get out of their vehicles without falling into the ditches.

The workshop, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6827, 4145 34th St. N. For information, call (727) 464-8252 or Neri at (727) 527-5352.

Lealman is located generally between Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg and between Park Street and Interstate 275. Kenneth City lies in the middle.
