MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Members of the community are hoping to have some of their drainage issues cleared.

The residents say that the ditch was last cleared between 2003 and 2006. Trees and weeds have been growing in the area since that time and it has created an issue when it rains heavily because it causes excessive flooding.

The drain runs from Lizelia Road, the south end, all the way to the Briarwood Golf & Swim Club. They hope that the trees and weeds will be cleared sooner rather than later.
