Lawyer rebuilding after flood ravaged house

(Continued)

Kevin Piccoli, an accountant who oversees the Prattsville Development Corp., which was formed to rebuild the town, said only a handful of residents became so discouraged by the flooding-related damaged that they decided to give up on the community.

He said state officials are expected to approve up to $1 million in funds to help businesses and homeowners get back on their feet. "Everyone was a little nervous when Sandy came around, but the mood is good now." he said. "People are focused on rebuilding and we keep pushing along those lines.

Prattsville Town Supervisor Kory O'Hara said he and other town residents were delighted when Rikard opted to build anew on the spot where the Victorian had stood.

"It's a positive picture in Prattsville," he said.
