City Council to Vote on Buyout Plan for Flood-Damaged Des Moines Homes
DES MOINES, Iowa -- On Monday, the Des Moines City Council will vote on a plan to buy out up to $6.5 million in flood-damaged homes. Under the proposal, the home would have to be uninhabitable, located in a flood plain, or located in an area where a buy-out would help prevent future flooding.
