The numbers are in from what the spring flood ended up costing the City of Pembroke. Earlier this year, debris such as trees accumulated in the Muskrat River by City Hall and had to be removed repeatedly to prevent damning and over 10,000 sandbags were provided to protect properties. In total, it cost the city $128,486. Unfortunately, the city doesn't qualify for the Municipal Disaster Recovery Assistance program. In order to be eligible, costs must exceed three per cent of the City's own purpose taxation which is approximately $634,000. City council will be looking at any surplus at the end of the year and will be using that extra money to pay the bill.
