Gurnee continues to be aggressive in protecting property from flooding, according to the village engineer's presentation to elected officials. Engineer Scott Drabicki told the village board at a meeting Monday night that Gurnee continues to remove buildings from flood-prone areas and encourages homeowner associations to be proactive in ensuring pipes carrying stormwater remain clear, so they empty into detention basins.
