Marshall County diving in for most-necessary flood-repair projects

LACON — Marshall County Board on Thursday approved moving ahead with a number of county aid projects pertaining to flood damage.

Although some board members expressed concerns about the county being required to pay for the projects if disaster assistance isn’t received at a later date, county engineer Ed Andrews said he doesn’t expect the projects will be put out for bids for at least one month.
Board member Brad Lindstrom said these are repairs the county has to make, regardless of financial assistance.

“(We) probably had the most damaging natural disaster to ever hit your county and this is the bill,” he said.

Lindstrom said if the items are not repaired, another flood would damage them further, which would cost the county even more money.
“We’ve got to get on them now,” he said.
