Emergency funds approved to help repair flooded homes in Canyon Co.
CANYON COUNTY, Idaho (KBOI) —
Residents of a Canyon County neighborhood who lost their homes to flooding damage last month are one step closer to getting their homes back.
On Tuesday, officials from the Canyon Highway District No. 4 announced that emergency funds have been approved to help repair the damage.
More than 20 families lost their homes on August 13th when Midway road collapsed into an underground pipe and flooded the neighborhood.
Tuesday's meeting was the first of its kind since the flooding happened.
After the meeting, Highway District officials met one-on-one with homeowners to introduce them to the claims accommodator who will be surveying the damage done to their homes.
Homeowners were able to schedule appointments with the claims accommodator, who will assess the homes for damage beginning Friday and plans to be finished by Monday.
After that. they'll decide which homes are in the most need of repairs and start there.
The emergency fund will max out at $500,000.
KBOI 2News asked officials from the Canyon Highway District No. 4 for comment, but they respectfully declined saying that right now their only focus is on the homeowners.
