Bossier Parish Tornado Victims Facing Unexpected Fees
The rebuilding process has begun after last weekend's tornadoes destroyed homes across the area. Residents in Bossier Parish are learning in order to get their power turned back on they'll be required to pay an inspection fee of $185 to Bossier officials.
In 2016 the fees were waived for flood victims but KTBS says no word from Bossier Parish officials whether or not the same will be done for the tornado victims. The inspection fee is to assure that it is safe to reconnect the power but given all the other expenses the tornado victims are facing $185 is something they hope they don't have to pay.
If you're wanting to help the victims there is a tornado relief fund set up at citizens national bank. The money will be used to help people recover from the devastation.
