FEMA later decided the city was due 75% of the repair costs because the county didn&#39;t meet its poverty guidelines.<br /><br />City finances were strained to come up with the $285,000. The city has tried to recoup that money ever since.<br /> Thu, 22 Mar 2012 20:13:10 +0000 James Lenz 12275 at http://tspr.org FEMA Comes up with Money for Warsaw
