County working on federal assessment process for flood damage
PRINCETON — Local officials are working with federal and state officials to determine if Bureau County is eligible for federal assistance following the April 17-18 heavy rains and flooding which damaged homes, businesses, roads and streets, bridges and public facilities across the county and state.
On Friday, President Barack Obama signed a declaration naming 11 counties to be eligible for federal funding, including LaSalle, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Fulton, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry and Will counties.
On Monday, Bureau County ESDA coordinator Kris Donarski said five teams have been sent out to assess the state, county by county, for damages received by the April rains and flooding. Donarski and local officials met last week with one of the teams, which included personnel from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Illinois
Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration.
