Mayor Ness On Flood Annivers... (Download MP3)

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Duluth Mayor Don Ness and other city officials gathered on Wednesday to report on progress in flood recovery efforts on the one year anniversary of the record setting event.  The city alone endured about 55 million dollars worth of public and private damage and officials say the recovery is an ongoing process that could take several more years to complete.  City infrastructure and parks took a big hit from the flooding and private property damage resulted in 188 flood related building permits and the city purchased 20 houses and a church that were damaged beyond repair.
