"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 the Jay County Commissioners this morning that environmental work on the expansion site at the corner of Ship and Main streets was "all good" and set tentative dates to bid the construction, which is estimated to cost around $6.5 million.
The target date for submittal of bids will be June 8, with plans to be available to contractors around May 14. Badders plans to hold a pre-bid conference May 27 to handle any questions potential bidders may have.
Badders went through a few requirements with the commissioners, including two separate bonds that bidders must be able to post if they win the project.
Contractors will have to field a 5 percent bid bond, which Badders called "pretty standard."
That bond would help the commissioners recoup money if the winning bidder is unable to handle the job and the county would need to move on to another firm.
The contract will also include a 110 percent bond that would cover performance, labor and materials. While usually 100 percent of the construction cost, Badders said he bumped it up to 110 percent to be safe, since contractors are so hungry for work.
"We''re probably more at risk with the low bidder right now," he said.
Since companies are offering cutthroat rates, Badders said the additional money would help protect the county in the event of mistakes made by potentially less-experienced contractors who may win the project by severely undercutting the competition.
Once the bids are received, the county will have to secure public financing to cover the total $10.25 million expansion.
"We''ll hold the bids for 90 days," Badders said. "That will give you time to go out and get your bonds."
The commissioners told Badders that the dates looked good at first glance, and county auditor Nancy Culy will take care of necessary advertisements.

"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.

"I don''t see any place we can save $700,000," said Jeff Badders of SchenkelShultz as he reviewed the bid tab.
