Third Appeal Summary
PA ID# 000-00000; Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
DSR ID# 62226; Route 3009
PURPOSE: To obtain signature on the letter to the Governor's Authorized Representative of Pennsylvania denying the third appeal from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for additional funding on DSR 62226.
DISCUSSION: In the aftermath of the January 1996 winter storms and floods, FEMA wrote DSR 62226 on May 22, 1996, for $59,858 to repair damages sustained by State Route 3009. PennDOT appealed the determination on August 23, 1996, requesting additional funds. The region requested additional information to process the appeal and determined that some of the work that was authorized was not done and that some of the new work requested was eligible. The region computed that $15,777 of the costs was not eligible and wrote DSR 72944 to deobligate the amount. PennDOT submitted a July 30, 1997, second appeal with supporting documentation. A detailed examination of the data resulted in the award being increased to $95,835. DSR 40453 was prepared for $51,784 to make the adjustment. FEMA communicated this partial approval of the second appeal on April 30, 1998. On September 8, 1998, more than 120 days later, PennDOT submitted a third appeal requesting an increase of $13,764 on the DSR.
RECOMMENDED ACTION: Sign the letter denying the applicant's request for consideration.
