(Richmond, IN)--A downtown Richmond business is filing a lawsuit against the city over the effects of downtown construction. Phillips Drugs and owner Pete Zaleski have filed a Tort Claim Notice through a central Indiana attorney asking for reimbursement of over $7700 for water damage. Specifically, Zaleski alleges that sidewalks that were installed as part of the Stellar Complete Streets construction project slant toward the building and that, every time it rains, water seeps into the building’s basement through its foundation. The tort claim says that Zaleski has repeatedly sought a resolution from the city, but the problem remains unresolved. We’ll have more on the issue throughout the week next week, beginning Tuesday. Below is a link to the Tort Claim in its entirety.
