Survivors from the April severe weather in Colorado County can start registering for FEMA Assistance by calling 1-800-621-3362 or online atwww.DisasterAssistance.gov. If survivors have already registered with FEMA, they do not need to do so again. FEMA inspectors will begin making appointments with residents that applied for assistance after they submit their necessary insurance documentation to FEMA.
Further, FEMA Assessment personnel will start contacting those who tomorrow have registered with FEMA or on the list from the shelter.
2 Public Assistance Damage Assessment Teams will be in the county on Wednesday to start the infrastructure assessments.
Please let everyone know the process has begun and we see processing of requests.
A meeting will be held at 1000 hours on Friday to formulate a plan and determine methods on getting word out and canvassing affected areas.

"The Tax Rate will effectively be raised by 7.66 percent (percentage by which the tax rate exceeds the effective maintenance and operations rate) and will raise taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $34.30."
