There won't be any tax breaks this year for those who suffered damage during Hurricane Sandy in Preston County.
A couple dozen residents have called the Preston County Assessor's Office asking if they'll see any relief on their property taxes. Commission members were brought up to speed at a meeting Monday night. 
The taxes are based from July of this year, so those people would see a break next year. Commission is also hopeful that FEMA will give private reimbursement to residents. Some were stranded for two weeks with spoiled food and hundreds of dollars invested in generators. Folks in the area still struggling with telephone outages.
"I know they like to see destruction and things falling down before they pay for it but as far as people's pocketbook go, it's probably hit harder in a situation when you either lose the food you had in your freezer and that type of thing, or you try to run the generator for two weeks," said Commission President Craig Jennings.
Sheriff Elect Dan Loughrie was also at that meeting, announcing his pick to fill the chief deputy post. Deputy Paul Pritt has almost 20 years of police service and according to Loughrie is fair, firm and consistent.
