Dear Ms. Myslewicz:
This is in response to your letters dated September 19, 2008, which transmitted the referenced eleven (11) second appeals on behalf of Luzerne County (Applicant). The Applicant appealed the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) decision to deny funding to upgrade several roadway structures based on current codes and standards.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Regional Administrators decision in the first appeal is consistent with Public Assistance regulations and policy. Accordingly, I am denying the second appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
Acting Assistant Administrator
Disaster Assistance Directorate
