LaGrange recovering from 2008 flood
Fri, 22 Aug 2008 16:27:07 GMT — Things are getting back to normal in LaGrange Missouri. Just two weeks after the flood volunteers from Quincy and Memphis, Tennessee helped the city get rid of all the sandbags. Some delayed city projects are back on track also. But the east side of town may look different in the future. That's because all of the businesses next to the river have signed up for a buyout. But it will be mid November before anyone finds out if the buyout is successful. The city is also waiting on money from FEMA. It will take a month or two before the city finds out about that. LaGrange is hoping to get between 130 to 140 thousand dollars from FEMA. Bunge is also building a new grain elevator in the community.
