WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - The Richland County Commission is paying back the Federal Emergency Management Agency for flooding projects.

The Wahpeton Daily News reports that the county will likely pay nearly $125,000 to FEMA that was allocated to repair township and county roads. The agency says it was excess money given to the county for repair from floods in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.

County Emergency Manager Brett Lambrecht says FEMA originally asked for millions of dollars to be returned because some of the projects lacked the necessary permits, but the county has since fulfilled that obligation.

The money will be taken from county’s general fund.
