Residents Demand More For Water Main Break Damage
CHANHASSEN, Minn. (WCCO) –- Chanhassen residents told the city council Monday night that $2,500 isn’t enough to cover the damage caused by a water main break that filled their homes with sewage last month.
The city came up with the $2,500 to placate residents after the city’s insurance company denied the resident’s claims for a second time. The amount is the same the city paid to a homeowner last year for water main break damage.
“I’ve got over a dozen people on my list that have over $10,000 and up to $30,000 in damage. This is not just water cleanup: This was extensive and everything that water touched had to go in the trash,” said Chanhassen Hills resident Amy Powell.
The council asked for more time to consider the pay out.
