Wire along storm drains?

Storm drain channels crisscross Orange County and Stanton, and those concrete fake creeks – some would say “ditches” – can keep communities from flooding during times of heavy rain.

But they can also collect litter and debris, be defaced with graffiti, attract transients and even serve as “freeways” for coyotes into suburban neighborhoods.

When the Stanton City Council meets on Tuesday, one item on the agenda is consideration of installing “defensive wire” along the channels to discourage misuse of the facilities, as proposed by Mayor David Shawver at the Sept. 12 meeting.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m, in the council chambers inside the Civic Center 7800 Katella Ave.
