Fargo: FEMA grant can’t be used for downtown floodwall
FARGO — If Fargo city commissioners want to build a proposed $53 million floodwall along Second Street, the federal government won’t pick up any of the bill.
City officials were hoping to use about $25 million of a Federal Emergency Management Agency hazard mitigation grant to pay for a portion of the downtown floodwall. Cities across the state could start applying for portions of the grant after 2011 flooding.
