The Montgomery County Commissioners Court approved the action during an emergency meeting Friday. The cost of the repairs, Noack said, would be under $100,000. That amount would be eligible for reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Noack had not yet selected a firm to do the repairs.
