Ocean Ridge Commissioners unanimously approved hiring Higgins Engineering Inc. to study the chronic drainage problems in parts of the Inlet Cay island neighborhood.
    Robert Higgins, president of the West Palm Beach company, has 30 years’ experience dealing with drainage issues in South Florida and was the only qualified applicant to bid on the study. He told commissioners he would charge an hourly rate and provide as much analysis as they requested.
    Residents in the Spanish River Drive area have complained for years about street and driveway flooding during seasonal king tides and storms. The town has been able to relieve recent episodes by repairing damaged and blocked outflow pipes.
    Higgins told the commission he would take a comprehensive look at the problem area and advise the town on possible long-term solutions.
