Senator Sandy Senn has organized a hands-on clearinghouse for her Charleston County constituents who have experiencing flooding damage in District 41 Monday, March 5 at 6 pm at the West Ashley High School cafeteria. Engineers and maintenance staffers from the SCDOT, Charleston County, City of Charleston and City of North Charleston will be on-hand to address drainage issues.

U.S. Senator Tim Scott’s office will be on-hand to serve as a conduit for constituents who need FEMA assistance. People are asked to bring in flood insurance papers and any documents related to previous claims. Senator Scott’s office will work directly with high-level FEMA officials in Atlanta to expedite processing the flood mitigation assistance applications.

Unlike previous public meetings which turned into finger-pointing sessions, the March 5 meeting is designed to bring about action and solve problems. Constituents will be organized into groups based on where they live. Local elected officials who live in District 41, which includes most of West Ashley and parts of North Charleston, James Island and John’s Island, and the corresponding local government maintenance staff will directly take input from impacted constituents. Dorchester County flooding victims in Senn’s District are asked to contact her at SandySenn@SCSenate.gov.
