Mihalik Believes Infrastructure Plan Could Help Flood Mitigation Process

Findlay Mayor Lydia Mihalik thinks President Trump’s infrastructure plan could help address Blanchard River flooding. Mihalik appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered” recently to talk about the issue.

Mihalik told host Mary Louise Kelly she met with Trump to talk about flooding last year. The President would like to see public-private partnerships address issues like these. Mihalik said while Findlay is in a good position to get help from the private sector, she cautioned Trump that not every community is in the same boat.

Mihalik said the private sector is helping push for a fix on flooding because there’s a business case for helping out.
