County Seeking $100,000 in Federal Disaster Aid Stemming From February Blizzard

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) met with Scotland County officials in Memphis on April 15th at the courthouse to finalize applications for disaster aid.

Emergency Management Director Bryan Whitney indicated the county will seek approximately $100,000 in reimbursement offered through FEMA for the winter storms that pounded the region on February 1st and 2nd. A blizzard dumped record snowfalls on northeast Missouri, forcing government agencies to undertake massive cleanup efforts beginning February 3rd.

If approved, the county's application would help offset costs incurred during a 48-hour period beginning at 6:30 a.m. February 3rd.

Presiding Commissioner Chipper Harris indicated the county is seeking reimbursement for extensive labor expenditures and equipment usage created by the storm clean up as well as materials used to remedy the storm-covered county roads.

Figures submitted to FEMA estimated labor expenditures of $23,850 for the road and bridge department as well as $2,016 of overtime paid for added dispatching services during the emergency. The county estimated costs of $66.250 for equipment usage as the entire fleet of graders was mobilized to help get the county roads opened as quickly as possible. Approximately $1,6000 in materials were also expended in the clean up.

If approved, the disaster aid would reimburse 75% of the total claims submitted in the Scotland County application for aid.
