On the heels of a plea to the Federal Emergency Management Agency by the city of Evans for funds to clean up two flood damaged mobile home parks; a statement from the agency outlines millions of dollars in past assistance to the city, but does not pledge additional funds.

Larimer County officials have repaired 45 bridges and reopened 30 miles of temporary roadway following September’s flooding. But there’s a growing concern about fixing some private roads damaged by floodwaters.
