With the Fox River approaching a record flood level, residents of Princeton are getting fed up.

The Fox has jumped its banks three times in the last 10 months and there have been four major floods in the last 10 years. Some people are pushing for construction of a flood wall. Local officials say they have met with the Department of Natural Resources and state emergency management officials. The situation is complicated because much of Princeton is located in a marsh area.
