HOLLISTER, Mo. -- Continued help tonight for flood victims in Hollister.

The city held a town hall meeting Tuesday evening to update flooding relief efforts.

Residents and businesses could get questions answered from support agencies like the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

Local leaders are still waiting to hear if the area will get a state or federal disaster declaration.

"Even though on a larger scale things seem to be moving slowly, there are a lot of people working on this," says Hollister City Administrator Rick Ziegenfuss. "On behalf of the residents who are displaced, businesses that are disadvantaged and public assistance for the community."

The Taney County Commission has also waived fees for residents who need to dispose of structural debris from the flooding. Residents can do that at the Taney County Transfer Station and need to get a voucher at Hollister City Hall.
