Popular Progressive: Mason, Bailey, council, and city manager shine in time of crisis

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

The flood of 2008 is rapidly becoming a memory for many in Iowa City,
but for those impacted most severely, the results will be felt for a
long time to come. Credit is due for the handling of the evacuation
and flood relief efforts by the City council and, particularly, Mayor
Regenia Bailey, and City Manager Michael Lombardo. They have been
working tirelessly to make sure that city services did their best to
stave the flooding and, more importantly, to insure that residents
were safe. Certainly there are questions to be answered about the
flood plain designations and this, hopefully, will lead to redrawing
the maps so that either a) persons living in those areas will have
flood insurance or b) FEMA/city will purchase those parcels and reduce
the likelihood that families will go through what the folks in
Idyllwild, Normandy Dr., Thatcher/Maculis Trailer Park and other areas
experienced.
