Horse park submits flood damage projects to FEMA

The city of Conyers is submitting about eight projects for FEMA and GEMA reimbursement from damage from the September floods, according to Jennifer Bexley, director of the Georgia International Horse Park. Originally, damage estimates were around $200,000, but Bexley said damage is being discovered as the surveys widen. Out of those eight projects, the largest project might cost around $64,200 for the removal of 11200 cubic yards of sand that were pushed onto the glen. Other smaller projects include trails that were washed away or damaged by debris and the repair of a water main. FEMA reimburses about 75 percent of the cost while state and local agencies carry the other 25. GEMA is still determining how much of the 25 percent it will pay, said Bexley.
