FEMA: Site New Cedar Rapids Library Elsewhere

Link to October 13 Cedar Rapids Gazette article, "FEMA says downtown library must go on a new site; extra FEMA bucks to buy land in the offing".

Excerpt: The Federal Emergency Management Agency has decided that the city must build its new downtown library on a site other than the site of flood-wrecked library on First Street SE along the Cedar River.

City Council member and mayoral candidate Brian Fagan slipped the announcement of the FEMA decision into the mayoral debate last night at Coe College. Fagan said the FEMA decision would bring with it an extra $4 million in disaster payments for the library.
