FEMA to Reimburse City of Knox Over $7,000 for Costs Associated with February’s Flooding

A reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be coming into the City of Knox.

When the Board of Works met last Wednesday, Wastewater Department Superintendent Kelly Clemons told members that she received a report from FEMA. She informed them how much funding the department will receive to help cover costs associated with the flooding that took place back in February.

She explained, “We’ve heard back from FEMA and we should be getting $7,867 back.”

Superintendent Clemons said that money will go toward the administrative costs of applying with FEMA, overtime pay and a few other miscellaneous items.
