Federal Emergency Management Agency representative Peter Karoup turned out to be a popular visitor during a brief Magoffin County Fiscal Court meeting Thursday afternoon.
Karoup was on hand to inform court members that FEMA would still have a presence in the county although the service center at South Magoffin Elementary would be closed.
His appearance, though, gave judge-executive Charles Hardin an opportunity to show some appreciation.
"I would like to thank FEMA for all it has done, and especially thank them for re-assessing so quickly," Hardin said. "It has been a great help to people harmed by the flooding and we appreciate it."
Hardin also had some nice words for his second in command.
"I’d also like to thank deputy judge Mike Wilson," the judge-executive continued. "He has been on the road almost daily with FEMA and without his hard work and determination I don’t think things would have worked out as well as they have."
During the business portion of the special gathering, fiscal court members approved the second reading of a 2009 budget amendment and approved a second reading of and adopted a 2010 budget.
The court also approved a contract with Rebecca Moon Custom Cleaning Services for the executive office building and the justice center.
