Town Of Union Receives New Flood Buyout Conditions
Town of Union officials have received a revised property buyout proposal for the non-local share of acquisition expenses.
Officials say the proposal includes new conditions that were not contained in the original contract.
Town representatives plan to discuss the revised stipulations with the State Office of Emergency Management.
When the final terms are worked out, the town board is expected to authorize the finalization of the contract.
The proposed buyout plan then will be reviewed by state and federal agencies before property acquisition can start.
Under the property buyout program, about 100 flood-damaged homes in various town of Union neighborhoods would be demolished. No new construction would be allowed on the properties once they’ve been cleared.
