The damage and debris connected to Isaac may be all but forgotten, but the bills associated with the storm are still leaving their mark in East Baton Rouge Parish.
"I think we did a good job," said David Guillory, Director of EBR's Department of Public Works.
Guillory says Isaac left behind over $9 million in costs for the parish with more than $6 million of that coming from the collection and processing of storm debris.
"I think we worked 35 calendar days, 7 days a week until we were considered substantially complete with the debris cleanup, there may have been some straggling days and streets but it was 35 calendar days," added Guillory.
Guillory says paying for Isaac will ultimately be broken down on a 75 to 25 ratio with FEMA handling the larger portion but that will still leave the parish with more than $2.1 million in costs not covered. Guillory adds however, that is nothing compared to the price tag that came along with Gustav.
"The cost of that storm was in the range of $53 or $55 million compared to 9," said Guillory.
East Baton Rouge ultimately paid around $8 million for Gustav after FEMA handled 90 percent of the costs and like Isaac, it was paid from the parish's reserve fund made of taxpayer dollars.
"I think the process will move fairly quickly with this storm from my conversations with the state they want to close out this storm relatively quickly," added Guillory.
