Staff Report

A story in yesterday’s edition regarding federal disaster aid incorrectly attributed a quote about public assistance cost sharing to Public Information Officer Eugene Brezany.

The quote should have been attributed to Marengo County Emergency Manager Kevin McKinney, and it should have clarified that FEMA typically reimburses 75 percent of disaster recovery costs. In Alabama, a 15 percent cost share is assigned to local governments and 10 percent to the state government.
