FEMA Funding

Flood repairs and the lack of reimbursements by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the state were discussed during the recent regular meeting of the Pike County fiscal court.Pike Judge-Executive Ray Jones addressed the issue.“Something that is rather alarming is the amount of expenses that the court incurred with the bills last month at $2.5 million,” Jones said. “Some of that is insurance we paid out, some $900,000 in premiums but we have $438,000 for poly bags to fix the embankment failures caused by flooding and we’ll be somewhere north of a million dollars just for poly bags.
