MOHAWK- On Monday night, board members with the Village of Mohawk discussed the future of Fulmer Creek.
On the table, a $2 million flood mitigation project that officials said would help with flooding from the West Main Street bridge to the Vickerman Hill Bridge.
No decision was made at Monday night's meeting. The board decided they would wait to get more money back from the government before they made any decision.
Mayor James Baron told NEWSChannel 2, the village has already spent $1.4 million and he would like to get at least 50% back from the government before they shell out more money.
He said the taxpayers are his main priority.
"Everybody agrees the project 100% needs to be done and it's the next logical step for our flood program, but we have to make sure at the end of the day we can pay the bills that we have, and money is being returned from the state and the FEMA level that will allow us to do that," said Baron.
The board will discuss the topic further at their next meeting on February 12.
