The Madison City Commission has scheduled a public forum next week to talk about flooding.
The eastern South Dakota city of about 6,500 people was hit by heavy rains and flash flooding earlier this month. About 100 homes and businesses were damaged, and an Alabama man visiting family drowned in a creek.
The city has a history of flooding problems. Mayor Gene Hexom says that the public meeting on May 31
will give officials and residents a chance to provide ideas for preparing for future flood threats.
