Public Urged to Apply for Clean-Up Assistance

Mayor Chris Beutler today encouraged property owners and renters affected by recent flooding to apply for clean-up cost reimbursement through the City's Disaster Recovery Program. The fund is a $1 million program that will provide up to $5,000 per incident caused by the storms that occurred in May and in October of last year.

Program guidelines and an application are available on the City website at (keyword: disaster recovery). Applications must be mailed or delivered in person to the City Attorney's Office, County-City Building, 555 S. 10th St. The application deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 15. The City will consider an extension of the application deadline, if needed.

Letters were mailed Monday to all people who have filed a claim, informing them of how to apply for assistance. In addition, everyone who has called the City Wastewater Department to schedule an inspection will also receive a letter explaining the program.

The funds may be used to reimburse homeowners for specified remediation costs. It is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

If the public has questions, they may call Marcee Brownlee in the City Attorney's Office at 402-441-7281.
