    The Montgomery County Surveyor’s office is looking for a suspected blockage in the New Richmond drain tile system which has resulted in residential and field flooding in the area.

    County Surveyor Tom Cummins said that the tile is likely blocked with tree roots from a stand of roughly 200 year old trees near a section of drain tile. Cummins said a full reconstruction of section of tile was last completed in 1979.

    “Even in a solid tile, those roots are going to find that water,” Cummins said.

    The Better Business Bureau of Central Indiana has received a report of a white male in his 20s driving a silver Dodge pickup truck with All Star Paving in bold blue lettering on the side. He has been making rounds in Indiana and Kentucky pretending to be All Star Paving, an A+ accredited business. He is reported to be driving erratically and reports have indicated that he has become physically violent.

    “He has been selling door-to-door, which we never do, giving them only unit prices and then when the project is finished the cost is astronomical. He has threatened people and physically assaulted one individual,” office manager Deann Aubuchon of All Star Paving said.
