In The Region:

Summit County has lost its bid for state reimbursement for damage from the May 12th flood.

The county’s emergency management agency Administrator Valerie DeRose says the county fell short on criteria for reimbursement, which includes the number of people affected and the total dollar amounts.

“We very much empathize with people that have been affected by the floods. You know, it’s a terrible thing to go through, but we have no control over what the regulations are in place. We just do our best to make sure we gather everything, so that way if there is any possibility we can get assistance, we do.”

DeRose says Summit County has been through this before and that the state’s criteria has been in place for years. The storms and severe flood led to 1.4 million dollars in damages
