TIPP CITY, Ohio (WDTN) – Tipp City is getting help from Ohio to repair a huge culvert that failed during a heavy rainstorm last month.
The state is giving the city $340,000 in emergency funds – $68,000 of that will have to be contributed by Tipp City.
Acting City manager Brad Vath says the opening in the block of 3 hundred North 4th Street was caused by hydraulic pressure during the major storm and calls it a “failed culvert”, not a sinkhole as had been described.
The work should begin in the next 60 days.
In the meantime, part of 4th street is blocked and an orange construction fence surrounds the hole.
