On Friday, the commissioners offered to take over the entire debris removal project in Lone Grove and be responsible for meeting the 12.5 percent local funding requirement. FEMA's contract is with Lone Grove, so the county will have to provide necessary documentation to the city so Lone Grove can reimburse them for expenses.
"If the county does something that is ineligible (for FEMA reimbursement), the county will absorb the cost," Robinson said.
The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management will monitor all documents to ensure they comply with FEMA rules and regulations, officials said.
Elfert said the county's help is appreciated.
"We'll reimburse you for everything you've done."
