John Richardson,

Sorry about the delay. I have tried to track this issue and there is some
hold up on this issue. The issue of power is a valid hold up but if you
wish to use a generator in the mean time (it is somewhat costly for fuel)
you can.

Good luck and God Bless,

If there is anyone reading this that is an electrician or is with FEMA and
can provide an explanation, I would be most appreciative.

We have had a trailer in our driveway for over a month, and initially drove
down to sign the lease agreement only to be told that we could not have the
trailer until the sewerage and electricity was connected. Ironically,
before we left, we stopped by that Sunday and found everything complete
except that the contractors pole was not connected and there was no meter.
After numerous follow-up calls we were informed that once the subdivsion had
electricity our problems would be solved. Well, last Saturday night Corinne
Drive/Avenue were well lit. I called Fleur and was advised that they are
waiting to file for a permit once they get the "box" they need to accomodate
underground wiring. I asked if I could buy this "box" in Tennessee at an
electrical supply house and was informed that all the boxes were used in
Alabama, and that we have a backorder of 400, yet only 3 came in last week.

What is the name of this "magic box" and does anyone know where I can get
one? Are there any alternatives short of having our house rewired and then
applying for a meter, or is that even an option?

Quite frankly, I don't know who to believe any more from FEMA, Fleur, etc.,
so I am asking for information from someone in St. Bernard who would like to
have others move back.

Any information would be of benefit.

John Richardson
