Commissioners hoping for FEMA reimbursement soon

PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 26, 2015) — Sheriff Ron Long’s threat of a libel lawsuit against those making online claims he was arrested for drunk driving wasn’t the only item handed by county commissioners Monday morning.

Commissioner Ricky Zweerink said he’s received notification that 21 roads and road portions damaged by the August 2013 flood have been approved by FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency officials for payment of $300,000 to $400,000 in his Western District. In the Eastern District, Commissioner Lynn Sharp said he expected a smaller amount of work in the Big Piney area to the southeast of U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood to be on the approval list.

Sharp said his project in Big Piney has been reclassified several times, moving from being considered a small project to large project and back to a small project again. Another project in the Buckhorn area should be finished “in a week or two.”

“We’ve completed the work on the guidelines they set forth, we did it according to their guidelines they gave us,” Zweerink said.

County Clerk Brent Bassett concurred.

“Now they need to approve the work that was done and pay it. That could be next week or next year” Bassett said.

“We don’t know what they are going to do as far as the appeal process,” Sharp said.
