Grand Rapids asks businesses to submit flood-damage surveys
Grand Rapids city commissioners extended the city’s state-of-emergency status this morning, following the flooding of the Grand River nearly two weeks ago.
The city will be under this designation through May 24.
Commissioners took the action to give city staff enough time to complete damage assessments.
The city has asked businesses and institutions that were affected by the flood to complete a damage-estimate survey and submit the information to the city assessor’s office by tomorrow, May 1. All surveys will be used to estimate the total damage.
The survey, along with other flood information, can be found at update.grcity.us.
Kent County commissioners extended a countywide state of emergency last Thursday. It, too, remains in effect until May 24.
