Deschutes County and FEMA have gone round and round the last couple years on trying to get reimbursement for fuel reduction work to prevent wildfires.

 

FEMA said the county did more than the grant specified and wouldn't pay up. 

 

But Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and Congresman Greg Walden got involved and help broker an agreement between the agencies.

 

Deschutes County Forester Ed Keith says they've reached agreement on a 2007 grant and are still reviewing a 2008 grant.
