Dear Mr. Fugate:
This letter is in response to the referenced second appeal submitted by the City of Fort Pierce (Applicant) on March 29, 2006, transmitted by your letter dated April 4, 2006. The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) determination to deny costs associated with the removal of debris from private roads.
For reasons explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicants claim of $297,434 for debris removal from private property is eligible for FEMA assistance. Therefore, I approve the appeal. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Administrator to implement this decision.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206.
Carlos J. Castillo
