The dispute between FEMA and Deschutes County over grant money may not be over.  As wildfire season hits its full stride, the concept of clearing fire fuel away from our homes becomes more obvious and important.

 

Deschutes County found a more efficient model to use the grant money and so they used the savings to make the project larger- but FEMA is disagreeing with the creativity, and wants some of the money back.  “We went and challenged that and we were able to release some of the funds for the 2010 grant.  We still have some issues with a couple of the older grants.  We may need to make another trip.”   Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says they are still fighting for their position and don't believe they need to give FEMA a "refund."  If the county ultimately must return the money, it will most likely come from the general fund.
