Good morning. I'm sorry to hear that you are in this dilemma. The first thing you have to do is determine who owns the drainage ditch property. If it is part of the legal description of your property, then you are responsible for keeping it cleared out. If your association owns common area property, then it is their responsibility. That appears to be the case since they have maintained that in prior years, and if so, you will have to take the association to court to force them to act. The last thing you want is for the city to have to do it and attach liens for the cost to your property. That is, if it is in fact your property.
I hope that this information has been helpful to you. If so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.
