County officials received a $135,980.24 reimbursement check from FEMA for repairs on three sections of Trent Lane. Washington County Judge-Executive John Settles said he believes the check is 90 percent of the total amount the county will receive. The remaining will be available following final inspection by FEMA, which Settles said could take up to two years.

“This was money we paid out of our road department fund, so it’s great to get that reimbursed,” Settles said.
