County buying four flood-proned homes through MEMA
Published: May 13,2013
PEARLINGTON — Hancock County’s buy-out program has finally gotten off the ground.
Four homes in the Pearlington community are currently in the process of being purchased through the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency program.
County leaders tell WLOX-TV they will have up to $10 million to purchase as many repetitive loss properties as they can.
Supervisor David Yarborough says the county wants to stretch this money as far as it.
He says the county is going to buy the footprint of the house plus a 30-foot perimeter around the home.
Officials say it’s not too late to apply for the program, but they say those already on the list will be considered first.
