Clarksville, Iowa – Clarksville Residents affected by the September 2016 flood finally have money in their hands.
Eight homes ravaged by flood waters have been purchased by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Val Swinton is the mayor of Clarksville.
The City of Clarksville is responsible for the demolition of the structures. After demolition, the areas will become green spaces and no other structures will be allowed to rebuild on top of it. Swinton says the loss of the houses puts a tax burden on the city.
