Committee to work towards long-term Brookport recovery
BROOKPORT, Ill - A committee will be formed, headed by Jerry Harfoot from FEMA for a long-term recovery plan to rebuild Brookport.
The committee, named Massac & Pope County Recovery Committee (MPCRC) will work with various agencies for a long-term rebuilding recovery plan in Brookport and surrounding area.
The MPCRC mission, to "seek to provide unmet spiritual, physical, and emotional resources to those affected by the November 17, 2013 disaster regardless of race, color, creed, gender, disability or religious preference" will be composed of local people.
The committee is currently meeting twice a week to establish basic action guidelines as well as develop subcommittees to coordinate other efforts in the rebuilding process.
As many volunteer organizations have offered to provide labor for rebuilding, and the MPCRC will coordinate these as well as recovery efforts.
Once the committee is fully established, the work will continue to fully erect a resolution towards remedying the physical and emotional effects of the tornado.
