That data has been presented to Governor Kay Ivey.
Representatives Lee and Chesteen along with Director Judah discussed with Governor Ivey the major damage which Houston, Geneva, Dale and Henry suffered. But they also carried the message of the disaster suffered by the farmers. Also discussed regulations which hurts farmers in moving forward.
Governor Ivey pledged her offices full support.

The local legislative delegation - Senators Harri Anne Smith and Billy Beasley, Representatives Paul Lee, Donnie Chesteen, Dexter Grimsley, and Steve Clouse have worked hard on the individual assessment but also the help to the farming community.
While all Houston County Commissioners have worked hard, no one has worked harder then Commissioner Doug Sinquefield. He has been nose to the grind stone making sure all that can be done is being done.
Now up to Governor Ivey, FEMA and President Trump.
