The county will get $212,000 back for the work crews did on Cash Canyon Road so far, provided the commission approves it.

EMA Director Chris Adams described the what they did.

“The sheriff’s department went door to door gave all of them the opportunity to evacuate. But Ben Wilson and Todd got the highway department to stabilize the road that night and did some unbelievable feats that people can’t imagine to save this road. And then we got TEMA involved and submitted all of the paperwork. We do that anytime there is a disaster that impacts any property in Hamilton County from private to commercial, to roadways, everything,” Adams said.

Cash Canyon Road is one of several in the county that experience frequent flooding and blocking of roads.
