FEMA takes the high moral ground? You should thank them for making it clear early on that you all will have to sue some agency to get this fixed.
You also notice that they are framing this as
they are the parents and
you are the unruly children.http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=shaming+behavior&ie= UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
My mortgage company also acts provocatively.
They want you to act out of anger so they will have something on you. Right now they don't.
Look up some of their scandals and then you can take back the high moral ground.
If they've been sued for misconduct or incompetence it must be in the public record. Does 'Katrina' sound familiar?http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=%22v.+fema%22&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
And if some agency did any civil engineering work in the area they might have 'enabled' this to happen, in other words, this event was 'reasonably foreseeable'.
BTW, if you can supply the shape and the dims of this mess I can probably tell you cubic yards. Eight hours x 250 people = 2000 person-hours of labor. In my area it costs three cents per pound to dispose of fill dirt.
