Area to be examined would be the east side of North Leroy, from Dauner Road heading north to the city limits.
After two heavy rain storms, Fenton City Council is considering a $12,000 study of the storm sewer system on the east side of North Leroy Street.

The heavy rains caused flooding in the North Leroy Street area, and business owners voiced concerns to Fenton city staff about flooding in the street and on private property, said Director of Public Works Daniel Czarnecki.

The $1.5 million project is 95 percent complete, DPW director says.
Rain on Friday meant the paving on North Leroy Street finished Sunday, leaving the approximately $1.5 million project 95 percent complete, Fenton Department of Public Works Director Daniel Czarnecki said Monday. Adding traffic lane lines and new signs, and doing restoration work and cleaning need to be done, he said. A final inspection will take place before the last payments are made.

Road will be much improved after the construction, council members say.
All lanes of North Leroy Street are scheduled to be open to traffic on Sept. 21, as Fenton's approximately $1.32 million improvement project winds to an end. "Hang on and you'll have a speed trap out there again," said Councilman Les Bland at Monday's meeting. Construction began May 14, and it will have taken less than four months to complete it, Bland said.

It will be a very good road, Mayor Sue Osborn agreed. In the meantime, all of the businesses on North Leroy street are accessible to customers. "You have to have patience and be courteous," said Mayor Pro Tem Cheryl King. "Let'…
