Re: Second Appeal City of Lackawanna, PA ID 029-40189-00, Ineligible Damage, FEMA-1404 DR-NY, Project Worksheets (PWs) 229, 230, 231, 232, and 233
Dear Mr. Agostino:
This letter is in response to your April 7, 2003, letter forwarding the referenced second appeal on behalf of the City of Lackawanna. The City disputes FEMAs eligibility determination regarding damages to its sidewalks, curbs and driveway aprons. The amount in question is $837,151.
As described in the enclosed appeal analysis, I have determined that the City has not proven that the additional damages to its sidewalks, curbs and driveway aprons are a direct result of emergency work performed during the disaster. Accordingly, I conclude that City is not eligible for additional assistance. Therefore, I am denying the appeal.
Please inform the applicant of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206.
Daniel A. Craig
