BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio (WKBN) — Boardman Township will be having a one-time trash pickup for its residents to help with storm cleanup.
Many residents WKBN spoke with Tuesday had their basements completely flooded. Some even saw over 3 feet of water in their homes. Items such had big appliances, furniture, flooring, and even special keepsakes were destroyed in Sunday night’s severe storm.
Residents tell us they’re upset because this isn’t the first time it has happened.
“It’s the third time actually in twenty years, two times in three years that this has happened,” said Gary Gulu of Boardman.
“Oh here we go again, this was the third time. I lived on Parkside, we flooded. When I first moved in here, I flooded. that was bad. And now this time, which was real bad,” said Scott Byrns of Boardman.
