Flood victims in Pulaski County will soon have an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from elected and emergency management offices concerning the issues they're facing in the flood recovery process.
The Daily Guide and Stonebrooke Church are hosting the event at Stonebrooke Church in Waynesville on Friday, July 7, at 6 p.m.
Former sheriff and local author, J.B. King will be moderating the forum. Personal invitations have been extended to Senator Roy Blunt, Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Dan Brown, Representative Steve Lynch, Representative Robert Ross, Pulaski County Commissioners, Floodplain Administrator Don Mayhew, Director of Emergency Management Lawson "Smitty" Smith, FEMA representatives, and Community Active in Disaster (COAD).
The officials present will be allowed to give a five minute talk each to discuss flood recovery, the things they've been working on, and identify issues they've discovered during the process. Attendees will be allowed, after the officials, to ask questions and receive answers during the forum.
The Daily Guide will be broadcasting the event live on Facebook and will provide a wrap-up of the event in print and online the following Tuesday.
The Daily Guide hopes to provide a forum for victims and officials to address issues and concerns, as well as get important information out to the public. The public is welcome and invited to attend the event.
Attendees may request slips of paper, as they walk in the doors, so that they may write down their questions to present, when the question and answer period opens.
Stonebrooke will be able to accommodate a large crowd of around 200 people, so the public is welcome to attend, even if they don't have questions they would like to ask.
Topics that the Daily Guide hopes to cover at the forum include current and upcoming legislation that affects flood victims, the process of making claims and getting assistance, what the public can expect next, issues that officials present may be able to address for victims in attendance, as well as a myriad of other topics.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, and would like to submit a question to be asked, those can be emailed to editor@waynesvilledailyguide.com. Questions should be relatively short and aimed at a specific official.
