Kingfisher Official critical of FEMA

Oklahoma City (AP) _ The City Manager of Kingfisher says he's discouraged with the response of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to flooding in the town.  Richard Reynolds told the State House of Representative's Transportation Subcommittee that FEMA has repeatedly rejected providing federal money to repair infrastructure because there's evidence of prior damage.

He says FEMA is ruling out helping pay for repairs of things like sink holes in roads and cracks in public buildings.  Reynolds also says he didn't have a meeting with FEMA officials until more than a week after the August 19th flood.
