Re: Second Appeal- Monroe County, PA ID 055-99055-00
Cost Overruns, FEMA-1467-DR-NY, Various Project Worksheets
Dear Mr. Agostino:
This is in response to your letter dated November 4, 2005, regarding the second appeal on behalf of Monroe County (Applicant). The appeal disputes the basis on which the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) denied consideration of additional costs incurred by the Applicant for debris removal and emergency protective measures in connection with this disaster.
As explained further in the enclosed appeal analysis, the Applicant is eligible for reimbursement of the cost overruns on its two large projects, Project Worksheets (PW) #818 and 914 for a total of $25,986.28, but is not eligible for reimbursement of overruns on its two small projects. Furthermore, FEMA will prepare a supplement to PW #756 for ($10,039.92) to correct a duplicate payment in the original PW. Accordingly, the appeal is partially approved.
Please inform the Applicant of this decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 C.F.R. §206.206.

Federal Emergency Management Agency
