Director of Lyon County Emergency Management prepares for FEMA assessment of flood damage - KVOE

A weekend press release issued by Jarrod Fell, the director of Lyon County Emergency Management, noted that the cost of damages accrued by both the county and the state has attracted the attention of the federal government.
{wbty_audio audio_id="16457" audio_title="Fell: Threshold"} Fell and other county officials collaborated on a disaster proclamation that was signed by commissioners after rivers crested and flood waters subsided. This was the first step in reaching out to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, with the second step scheduled to be taken next Thursday as damage assessments crystallize. {wbty_audio audio_id="16459" audio_title="Fell: Meeting"} After the county submits the necessary paperwork to FEMA, representatives from the agency are likely to arrive in Emporia and commence with their own assessment of the situation. With federal regulations in mind, Fell explained that FEMA is unlikely to fund projects that are anything other than moderately restorative, but plenty of opportunities for aid still exist. {wbty_audio audio_id="16460" audio_title="Fell: Assessment"} According to Fell, the purpose of having the county request federal aid is to reduce the impact of reconstruction costs on local taxpayers. Given that Lyon County has the third lowest per capita income in a state of 105 counties, Fell and his team may be on their way to securing a boon for residents who continue to live modestly in the wake of disaster.
