Albany - Frances and Ivan cost Albany-Dougherty County more than $665,000 which includes the cost of clean-up, overtime pay for utility workers, equipment and gas. But, the cost doesn't include the damage to private property.

Tuesday, FEMA officials visited Albany and said the county is eligible for federal assistance. However, the decision to declare the county a federal disaster area is ultimately up to the President.

"Unexpected occurrences, like these hurricanes, eat heavily into your city and county budgets. This is an opportunity to replace those coffers to continue on without being in a deficit," said EMA Deputy Director Jim Vaught.

More FEMA officials are expected to decide if individuals are eligible for federal money, but only two homeowners have asked for help.
