People living near Adams Creek in Broken Arrow say they are one step closer to seeing flood relief.
At Tuesday night’s Broken Arrow’s city council meeting councilors approved $75,000 to help study flood prevention in the Adams Creek Area.
The study is part of the process to apply for FEMA money. However, the vote was conditional.
Fox 23’s Abbie Alford attended the meeting to find out why the partner, Wagoner County, isn’t dishing out as much money to help with the study.
Broken Arrow Spokesperson Keith Sterling says Wagoner County and the city were each contributing $75,000 which would match federal grants and allow them to apply for a $450,000 FEMA flood prevention grant.
Sterling says the county is now dedicating only $50,000 which the city hopes FEMA will pick up the remaining $25,000 that is left from the grant to fund the study.
A call from Fox 23 News to Wagoner County Board Chairman Tom Vincent wasn’t returned Tuesday.
Meantime, people living in the Adams Creek Area say there is hope someday their home won’t flood.
Pam Wood says she lives next to Timber Creek and says when it rains it floods.
"We'll work weekends, weekends and weekends trying to clean up the mess," says Wood.
