Palmer Hopes to Receive FEMA Funding for Irene Cleanup
Initial assessments have $100,000 covered.
According to township manager Chris Christman, an initial site assessment by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently came back with an estimated $100,000 in reimbursable expenses. The funds will help assist in paying for damage done to municipal parks and municipal manpower hours spent in preparation and cleanup.
Not released so far, Christman said, are the actual hours and total cost involved in preparation and cleanup. Township Director of Public Works Tom Adams is currently putting those figures together.
