City officials have refused to release address-by-address flood damage data to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, saying the records belong to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and are not public under federal law. The newspaper had requested the information, citing a June 2007 federal court ruling under which FEMA was required to make public the addresses and damage report data on hurricane relief. (9/4/08)
