CHARLESTON -- Mississippi County will get to submit one more disaster relief project to FEMA.

"The Commission has received approval," County Clerk Junior DeLay advised commissioners during their regular weekly meeting Thursday.

County officials requested an additional spring flood disaster relief project for Brewer's Lake after water levels dropped low enough to reveal the drainage conduit had silted in.

Debra Johnston, the Federal Emergency Management Agency project specialist that had been assigned to the Mississippi County, is slated to come back next week to write the project on her way to her next job, according to DeLay.
