City of Wichita Falls reports: FEMA releases long awaited funds

The City of Wichita Falls has received notice that the Mitigation Action Plan has been approved by FEMA. This clears the way to receive a requested FEMA grant to further assist clean up of the properties damaged in the 2007 flood disaster. Residential properties that had more than 50% damage may have the voluntary opportunity to be purchased by the City and have demolition completed.

The NORTEX Regional Planning Commission and the City's Planning Division were the primary authors of the Plan. Help was received from the offices of Congressman Thornberry, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, State Representative David Farabee, The Governor's Office of Emergency Management, and State Senator Craig Estes to secure the approval.

The Wichita Falls City Council will take up the measure on Tuesday, July 8 during a specially called City Council meeting in Memorial Auditorium at 8:30 am.
