Lindsborg Flooding Declared a Local Disaster

     LINDSBORG, Kan.  -  The McPherson County Commission voted Thursday to proclaim a state of local disaster emergency exists following recent flooding. The move is a first step in the process of potentially receiving assistance to repair damage to public property and infrastructure.  Lindsborg received the most flood damage, estimated at close to $4 million.
     Effective immediately all contractors operating in Lindsborg must register with the City for all work requiring a building permit. This measure is being taken to protect the citizens of the community from fraudulent contractors and scam artists.
     The City has approved waiving all building permit and inspection fees associated with flood related repairs, renovation and rehabilitation. The building permit fees have been waived but building permits
are required.
     At a public hearing Thursday night, residents learned that they probably won't receive any federal assistance to repair their homes.  And most residents did not carry flood insurance.
