Rain to blame for no action on Jordan’s Point dam

By Jimmie Johnson III 

The Lexington City Council decided in October to remove the dam at Jordan’s Point Park,  but nothing has been done yet. Noah Simon, the Lexington city manager, said high water levels on the Maury River are delaying the extraction. City Council Member Leslie Straughan said the city plans to remove the dam in the summer when water levels are expected to drop.
