A portion of Mirror Lake Drive was washed away by Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016. This portion of roadway passed over the Mirror Lake Dam. A portion of the dam was also washed away by the flood waters. Following the disaster, the City conducted an assessment of the roadway and dam to determine an estimated cost for repairs. The estimated cost to repair the dam and roadway is $1.9 million. Under current City policy, the affected homeowners would be responsible for $500,000 of the cost.
The City is currently reviewing the policy and reaching out to the home owners association to determine a way forward.
