, FEMA-1577-DR-CA, Project Worksheet 3038
Dear Mr. Jacks:
This is in response to your letter dated January 18, 2007, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of Los Angeles County (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) decision not to revise the scope of work and increase funding for the repair of damages to two sections of Tuna Canyon Road.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, we have determined that the Applicants requested change to the scope of work at Site 1 exceeds the work required to restore the facility to its pre-disaster condition. Therefore, this part of the appeal is denied. The Applicants request to revise the scope of work at Site 2 is approved except for the planting of willow trees. By copy of this letter, I request the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter as set forth in 44 CFR §206.206.
Carlos J. Castillo
Disaster Assistance Directorate
