  1. Where are the DEVELOPERS when it comes to paying out to the flood victim? How much did they make when selling these homes to people? Do they not have a responsibility to pay back what they made off some unsuspecting victims of the flood after selling homes in flood plains and districts on the fringe? What about the City Planners who approved these developments in flood plains?

    Why are the taxpayers on the hook when we did nothing to cause these problems?
