Disaster Assistance May Be Available


AUSTIN, Texas - The federal disaster declaration has been expanded to include Individual Assistance for 20 more counties as a result of the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding that began May 4, according to the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The 20 Texas counties newly designated for Individual Assistance are: Bastrop, Blanco, Caldwell, Denton, Eastland, Fort Bend, Gaines, Guadalupe, Henderson, Hidalgo, Johnson, Milam, Montague, Navarro, Rusk, Smith, Travis, Wichita, Williamson and Wise. The initial three counties--Harris, Hays and Van Zandt--were previously designated for assistance under the federal disaster declaration of May 29.

Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for rent, temporary housing and home repairs, as well as other serious disaster-related needs, such as medical and dental expenses or funeral and burial costs.

Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) also are available. SBA helps businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters fund repairs or rebuilding efforts and cover the cost of replacing lost or disaster-damaged personal property. These disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries and do not duplicate benefits of other agencies or organizations.

Texans who had storm damage should register with FEMA even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but under-insured applicants may receive help after their insurance claims have been settled.

Residents and business owners should apply right away with SBA as part of the overall federal disaster recovery process, and not wait for insurance claims to settle.

People can apply for FEMA assistance online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or via smartphone or web-enabled device at m.fema.gov. Applicants may also call 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585 from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. (CT). Multilingual operators are available.

MOSQUITO DUNKS


If you have standing water, the City has a limited number of mosquito dunks available while supplies last. Each dunk will treat up to 100 sq. ft. regardless of the depth and is fish habitat safe.

Stop by City Hall to pick a bag up of 2 dunks if needed.


Attn: Wastewater Customers


During the recent rain events, the City's wastewater system has been carrying far more water than in normal conditions. We need your help in trying to get this heavy flow down to its normal amounts. This high level of flow causes problems in our lift stations and at our treatment plant.

Where you come in -- The sewer lines that extend onto your property could be leaking allowing rainwater to enter the system. A broken cleanout cap or cracked line in a low area can carry hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons into the collection system. The water coming from one yard isn't problematic by itself but when you have thousands of customers it adds up to an overwhelming amount.

What to do -- Please look around your yard for broken sewer piping of cleanout caps. If you suspect a problem, the Public Works Department would be glad to assist you in further identifying the problem and potential solutions. If you identify a problem area, please call (940) 482-3491 ext. 2. If we are not there, please leave a message with your address and phone number and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Mark Patterson
Public Works Director
