Flooding survey under way

I f your property or home suffered damage from this spring’s flooding, the village would like to hear from you.

Village trustee Michael LaChapelle has made up a questionnaire that has been distributed to flood victims throughout the community and any residents who have not received one are urged to contact village officials.

“We are trying to do a bit of a study to determine the extent of flooding damage incurred in the village,” Mayor Peter Telisky said.

Several weeks ago the Federal Emergency Management Agency dropped by un-announced as they continue to evaluate damage up and down Lake Champlain from this spring’s record high waters. Mayor Telisky had an opportunity to meet with officials from the agency and provided them with several pictures of the flooded properties.

FEMA officials were in town gathering facts and paperwork, and although assistance remains unlikely, it wasn’t completely ruled out.

“The doors have not been slammed shut yet,” Telisky said.

The village is hoping to provide the agency with more information to aid them in their study, thus the impetus for the survey.

“We creating a catalog of damages to particular properties and we’ll see if we qualify (for any aid),” Telisky said.
