FEMA will deny most of the $300 million that four Kansas utilities and cooperatives sought to pay for December ice storm damage.

The Clay Center Dispatch reports that FEMA told city utilities officials it will deny Clay Center more than $3 million to rebuild a power distribution system damaged in the winter. They also say most money sought by four municipal utilities and rural electric coops throughout the state will not be paid out either.

The Dispatch says local officials expect official word on the decision in two weeks.
