Two Years Later, Taney County Flood Buyouts Nearly Complete

By Austin Robertson. CREATED May 5, 2013

After over two years of meetings, paperwork, and phone calls, officials in Taney County are on the last bit of buyouts for nine properties damaged by floods.

Planning and Zoning officials say they hope to have the process finished in the next few months. The final steps include an environmental study and appraisals. 

Officials say while the affected homeowners had flood insurance, they'll probably only get about half the home's value covered.
