Description

Hear Joel Wilcox describe what it was like working with the federal government and the local buyout program as his neighborhood, just off Taft Speedway and across the river from Mosquito Flats, struggled to rebuild after the flood. He provides detail into the controversy and politics that arose as food victims and other neighborhood residents worked with FEMA, HUD, and other governmental agencies to obtain disaster relief and make infrastructural changes to decrease the impact of future flood events.
