When I contacted City Council President Chris Spurlin, he told me that the Parks and Recreation director was under the impression that the property belonged to the city. I then had to get a survey of my property to prove that I owned the property. I received an email from Spurlin stating that the city would repair the damage caused by the city.
The damage it caused was adding rock and asphalt to my property, adding an asphalt turnout from the street leading to my property and placing a drainage ditch through a corner of my property, which there is no easement for. I first emailed Spurlin on May 8 and the city has not corrected anything except for covering the rock and asphalt with red clay and sod. The last email from Spurlin states that the city has done all it’s going to do. Now I’m left with damaged property all because of the city’s incompetence.
