Unfortunately, Mr. Christopher is chomping at the bit to spend FEMA dollars to repair roads yet doesn't comprehend that this is not a valid solution. Sure, FEMA could take the roads back to the pre-flood state - but that's not the improvement Foard County is looking for. The roads were in a sad state pre-flood and to spend FEMA dollars would be a plain waste. It's like expecting your insurance company to replace your tornado ravaged shack with a 3 story mansion. The world doesn't work that way. You get only what you started with and in this case - it's just replacing horribly bad roads with terribly bad roads. This a case of Mr. Christopher wanting to look like the hero - and not realizing through his inexperience that this proverbial road has been tread.
