But what about the self-inflicted disasters?
New Albany City Council considers disaster grant plan, by Daniel Suddeath (News and Tribune).
The New Albany City Council will likely adopt a hazards mitigation plan Thursday aimed at cataloguing property value in case of a natural disaster.
It’s required of cities and counties by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, to receive grants following a
calamity with widespread damage.
Officials say the plan will also reduce potential harm to residents and save taxpayer dollars. It has already been passed by Floyd County.
That’s all well and good, but it there a disaster contingency plan in place in the event that Councilman Cappuccino becomes president of the city council? Is there such a thing as insurance against political bungling? Probably not. If so, George W. Bush would have bankrupted the nation’s insurers, too.
