Gulf Shores eyes $1.8 million to fix neighborhood flooding

City officials plan to ask the state Transportation Department for $1.8 million to help control stormwater runoff along East Second Street.

During a City Council work session earlier this week Public Works Director Mark Acreman said his department spent about $35,000 in development impact fees to design a drainage system that will route runoff from about 80 acres south of East 20th Street away from a flood-prone part of town and into the Intracoastal Waterway.
