Winnebago Co. might get FEMA aid

Winnebago County is one of eight counties that could get some emergency funding, from the federal government, to cover damage to public infrastructure that was caused by the rough winter.

Governor Walker is asking FEMA for $11.3 million.

Neenah Mayor Dean Kaufert says he's not sure the city is on the list to get help, but they could use it. He says they also had more water main breaks than during a typical winter.

Oshkosh public works director David Patek says they submitted an estimate on the budget impact with the county's emergency management office. He says depending on what would be eligible, the total ranges between $500,000 and $1 million.

Patek says crews had to deal with about three times as many water main breaks this year.
