The Bay City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is asking for help from its membership to seek out all information when it comes to gaining financial assistance from the federal government as a result of damaging events in the county.
“There are requirements to find the amount of damage for FEMA and other help for our citizens. We must prove we have so much damage to get federal help. Without the proof we won’t qualify for financial help. Really the only way we know if someone’s home or business was damaged is for them to let us know,” said Mitch Thames, president of the Bay City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture.
