FEMA Seeks Withdrawal of Garden City Lawsuit
10/27/2009
 

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency

is asking a judge to dismiss Garden City's legal challenge of a

proposed flood plain map.

FEMA attorneys on Monday filed a motion to have the lawsuit

thrown out. They argued that since FEMA withdrew the disputed map

changes in early September, the lawsuit serves no purpose and

should be dismissed.

Attorneys for Garden City, Finney County and three landowners

have refused to withdraw the lawsuit themselves. They say they

still have concerns over how FEMA plans to reintroduce the changes

and believe the court should look into the matter.

The map proposed designating certain ditches in Garden City as

"special flood plain hazard areas," but officials say those

ditches have never caused flood damage.
