When local government agencies and governing boards work in concert, changes that will positively affect local communities for generations are possible. Such a change occurred quietly over the past month in Ridgway. The Elk County Commissioners, the Ridgway Area School District Governing Board and the Ridgway Borough Council all came together to seal a deal that hopefully will help to greatly mitigate Clarion River flooding events in the future.
