An overwhelming amount of flood damaged bulk items was picked up today. But, we didn't get to everyone. Will be back on Monday trying to complete what we didn't finish
Trying to get info --will FEMA provide reimbursement for losses?
Yesterday, I sent out a robo call advising residents that the town would pick up storm damaged debris. Mentioned that people should leave debris at the curb. There was an overwhelming response - lots of bulk was picked up today. But...we didn't get to everyone. On Monday our crews will be at the southern end of the town collecting debris that we were unable to collect today.
Some residents have asked --will FEMA reimburse residents and businesses for lost property due to the flood (boilers, vehicles that were damaged, other property that had to be thrown out). As soon as FEMA confirms that residents and businesses are eligible for reimbursement we will immediately post information on the town website. In the meantime, take photo's of the damages. Keep receipts. Yesterday I asked Senator Gillibrand's regional office if FEMA will make grants available to residents and they said yes but they don't have info as of yet on the details. I will also invite FEMA to a community meeting to discuss how people can get reimbursed once details are finalized. Will do everything possible to make the process as easy as possible for residents.
It's frustrating --many people don't have adequate insurance to cover their flood related losses --which are substantial. I hope that FEMA finalizes details re: reimbursements soon and that those who have suffered can get the help needed.
