Flooded streets

Dear Editor:The marginal storm that blew through Downey over the course of two days last week was enough to remind us how substandard our drainage system, particularly downtown along Downey Avenue, has become. I urge the City Council to begin exploring ways to upgrade our drainage system in the future. It will not be cheap, but we should begin planning for this expenditure immediately. Maintaining, or in this case improving, the city's infrastructure should be a priority for city leaders and residents as well. -- Rosanna Donnelly, Downey
