Feds turn down potential flood relief help for Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on April 23, 2016

The feds have denied Governor Bruce Rauner’s appeal of the federal government’s decision to deny money to help Bureau County pay for winter flood damage.

Rauner asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency for almost $16 million in aid to help 17 counties including Bureau cover costs of flood damage in December and January.

By law, the state has ran out of appeals.
