Dear Ms Ward:
This letter is in response to your January 8, 1999, submittal of the second appeal by Reclamation District 2044, King Island (subgrantee) of our determination that it is not in compliance with Amendment #5 of the FEMA/State Agreement for FEMA-758-DR-CA and not, therefore, eligible for disaster assistance under FEMA-1155-DR-CA. The amendment establishes requirements to meet the criteria of the Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan, titled Short-Term Levee Rehabilitation Plan of September 15, 1983.
In response to the subgrantee's appeal, all related documentation and correspondence have been reviewed. As explained in the enclosed analysis, the subgrantee has not met the requirements of the amendment. Accordingly, the subgrantee is not in compliance with Amendment #5 and is not eligible for disaster assistance under FEMA-1155-DR-CA. The appeal is, therefore, denied.
Please inform the subgrantee of my determination. In accordance with the appeal procedure governing appeal decisions made on or after May 8, 1998, my decision constitutes the final decision on this matter. The current appeal procedure was published as a final rule in the Federal Register on April 8, 1998. It amends 44 CFR 206.206.
