Muskego officials will go fishing for a grant enabling the city to buy out a Janesville Road home that has suffered some of the worst flooding in the city.
The home suffered $60,000 damage in the 2008 flood and the family could not live in the home for 4½ months, said city engineer David Simpson. Then last year, the home suffered $15,000 to $20,000 damage.
Last night, the Common Council gave the go-ahead to ask for the Hazard Mitigation Grant for the $165,550 buyout and razing project. If obtained, the city's share would be only $21,000. The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District officials said the MMSD might be interested in helping out a bit possibly bringing the city's share down to $9,000.
Word might come in September about the fate of the application for the federal and state dollars, Simpson said.
