School system still owes FEMA

February 10, 2003

Albany- The Federal Emergency Management Agent claimed the school system owed the flood relief money because they didn't follow federal guidelines when they rebuilt some schools.

The school board finance department has been trying to get that figure reduced.

Robert Lloyd, school board finance director, has worked to get the $11 million repayment reduced to one million.

Lloyd says he thinks $1 million is a good figure, but will continue to try to get it lower before the deadline which is in about 70 days.
