Purchase deals near for Glouster flood victims
(2007-07-31)
(WOUB) - The long wait may finally be over for Glouster residents displaced by a flood in 2003.

Tri-County Community Action met last week with the county commissioners to wrap up the remaining purchase deals on the 12 damaged houses.

Athens County offered money to the families in addition to a grant from FEMA.

"Now we're at the point where we just have a few steps left and we have to work through those before the houses are demolished," said Jessica Stroh of Tri-County.

Stroh says those last steps include relocating the remaining residents and salvaging belongings from the houses.

Stroh says that demolition on the first batch of houses can then begin in August, with plans to complete the process by the fall.
