During their weekly meeting Jan. 29, the VZC Long Term Recovery Group approved the financial report which included the following information:

Current bank balance, $339,385.66 (prior to the meeting); funds approved, $53,689.96; and total funds available, $285,924.18.

The group encouraged those in attendance to mark their calendars for Feb. 16 as the Texas Forestry Service will be in Canton to discuss their tree replacement program. “Check our face book page in a few days for more details,” said a group spokesperson.

A Celebration Service is also planned for April 29 on the first anniversary of the tornado. Details will be coming soon by way of face book, according to the spokesperson.

The caseworkers reported that they still have a few open structure cases but we are now working on non-structure (debris removal) cases.

“The goal is to fund as much as we can on the debris removal cases in light of the structure cases getting to a point that we have addressed the mass majority of them,” said the spokesperson. “There have not been any new cases in the past two weeks.”

A total of 15 cases were reviewed with caseworkers with 11 of those being non-structure cases. Funding was approved totaling $53,689.96.
