Augusta, GA —

An Augusta woman says there is a sinkhole in her front yard, and it continues to grow deeper every time it rains.

The woman’s home is off Indian Hills Drive near Goshen Plantation, and she says not only is it an eyesore, but it is also a danger for kids who play in the neighborhood. She says officials with augusta roads and bridges have come out occasionally to put sand in the hole, but it continues to go away.

This forward looking vision does not mean discontent with the present. At the conclusion of the lunch, the crowd of several hundred cheered, “If you’re lucky enough to live in Aiken, you’re lucky enough.”

“Every time it rains, it just gets deeper and deeper and deeper and I’ve called the city and got a runaround about whose responsibility it was out there to keep that maintained, and now the people that I called told me I’m on waiting list, don’t know when they’re going to get to me and they hung up on me,” said Juanita Farmer.

Farmer tells us, in December, the hole was about 2 feet deep, but now it has grown to around 7 feet deep. We have put in calls with the director of engineering, and we are waiting to hear back from him.
