The Cumming City Council voted last week to enter mediation with the county concerning repairs to Sanders Road.

As the Forsyth County News reports, Forsyth County officials had offered during the first week of the month to work with the city in coming to a resolution over repairing a section of the road that has been closed since early last summer.

The Lake Alice Dam—between Market Place to the west, Sanders Road to the east, Buford Dam Road to the south and Mary Alice Park Road to the north—gave way to water on the morning of May 19, and Lake Alice flooded into Lake Lanier.

The dam's breach sent torrents of water and sediment across Sanders and led to its closure. 

The city and county have since differed on how best to share repair costs to the road, which has been closed between Buford Dam and Mary Alice Park.
