"Because we don''t need FEMA''s approval ... we don''t need flood insurance," said Jeff Badders of SchenkelShultz about the expansion.
Badders said, however, that ignoring the requirements, while likely having no repercussions for the county, could create problems down the line for the designing firm if FEMA wanted to press the issue.
"Everyone agrees the City of Portland is no longer in flood danger," Badders said.

"Most people fixate on construction costs," said Jeff Badders of SchenkelShultz.
The commissioners also discussed whether to award a bid this morning, but were advised by Badders that there was no rush. Weigand Construction Inc., Fort Wayne, was the apparent low bidder and has been in talks with Badders.
Although Badders said there was no reason not to accept their bid, the commissioners held off on any official action.
Badders said his team can look into working with some things to try to improve the look of the Main Street side, whether it be arrangement of lights or vents or other pieces of the building.

Jeff Badders of SchenkelShultz told Jay County Commissioners Monday that after further review of the jail bids and a meeting with apparent low bidder Weigand Construction, Fort Wayne, that the construction costs on the project have dropped to about $7.3 million.
Weigand submitted a bid of $7,693,000 for the full project, but alternates combined with a few cost-trimming measures shaved that number down slightly.
Badders told the commissioners that the main reason behind the bids coming in close to $1 million over the engineer''s estimate was due to masonry costs. Costs for concrete and masonry work on the structure have remained high, where other material costs have dipped during the past year or so.
If the building was more of a steel-based structure, Badders said, the bids would have been on target.

"The contract has been reviewed by your attorney and signed by the contractor," said Jeff Badders of SchenkelShultz of the $7.32 million construction contract.
The Jay County Building Corporation approved the contract and signed it without discussion. Weigand has been performing work at the site on intent-to-contract based agreement.
Badders said the building corporation can likely expect to see bills from the contractor at next month''s meeting.
In a construction update, Badders said crews are finishing pouring footers and will continue laying blocks and installing early electrical and plumbing infrastructure for the jail.
Crews also uncovered the remains of a basement of a tavern that was located on the grounds around the turn of the 20th century. Badders said the crews founds a poured floor and the remains of plaster walls and were able to remove and backfill the area.
