LONG BEACH, Miss. (AP) - Harrison County may not get reimbursed for the $174,000 it spent to repair the Jim Simpson fishing pier in Long Beach after Hurricane Isaac.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency sent a letter advising that the county was ineligible for FEMA funding, and the Board of Supervisors voted Monday to appeal that decision.

Sand Beach Authority Director Chuck Loftis tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1pZDtAi ) the county got approval from FEMA and MEMA before beginning construction.

Loftis emphasized that the project only included repairs to an existing structure and were made above the water level.
