FEMA a study in what not to do.

Does this make any sense?

"Now here's where the bureaucratic red tape comes in. Under FEMA regulations, the tornado shelters are considered "temporary" -- only necessary while the schools are being repaired and the students are in the trailers. When the schools are rebuilt or repaired, FEMA rules state that the federal government has to get rid of the shelters.

That can happen three ways:

1) The schools can buy the shelter from FEMA (about $375,000);

2) The schools can find a buyer;

3) If neither 1) nor 2) is feasible, FEMA will give the schools more taxpayer money to demolish the shelter and haul away the debris."

  1. Ps. Knowing our government it will cost more to demo the buildings and remove the debris than if they just gave them the buildings.

    Any sane person would work it out in a payment plain with in the city/county budget before they destroyed the buildings and wasted our tax money.
