INDICE DE GALERIAS
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied a final funding request from the University of Iowa to help replace its flood-damaged museum.
The Museum of Art's lower level mechanical and electrical systems were damaged during the city's 2008 flood. Officials estimate there's about $4 million worth of damage.
FEMA denied the school's funding request for a full replacement in July 2010. It denied appeals in January 2011 and April 2012. The agency's latest response in late March was denial to fund a mitigation project.
FEMA says the building fails the agency's threshold for replacement.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen (http://icp-c.com/13865fM ) reports private partners, the public or the city of Iowa City will be needed to be raise money for the museum, which has to be moved for insurance purposes.
