Evergreen Village resident pleads for quicker relocation process
SYCAMORE – Gayland Baker wanted to make his frustration as clear as the water that surrounded his and his neighbors' homes.
Baker, a resident of Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park in Sycamore, stood along Route 64 Tuesday morning with a sign urging the state, county and federal agencies to speed up the relocation process for the roughly 400 people living in the flood plain.
Frustration set in for Baker after a rainy weekend combined with snow accumulation left up to six inches of standing water in some areas of the park, making it impossible for some residents to leave their home because of flooded roadways.
