Dear Mr. Jacks:
This letter is in response to your letter dated January 10, 2006, transmitting the second appeal of the County of San Luis Obispo (Applicant), dated November 10, 2005. The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) determination to deny costs associated with riprap installation, erosion control measures, and habitat restoration performed in conjunction with the repair of Santa Rosa Creek Road, Mile Marker 4.8.
For reasons explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the claim of $254,600 for additional riprap, hydroseeding and jute netting, and habitat restoration is ineligible for funding. Therefore, I am denying this appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206.
John R. DAraujo, Jr.
Director of Recovery
