Re: Second Appeal–Napa County, PA ID 055-99055-00,
Retaining Wall Repair, FEMA-1628-DR-CA, Project Worksheet (PW) 2738-2
Dear Mr. McCarton:
This letter is in response to your letter dated April 7, 2009, which transmitted the referenced second appeal for Napa County (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Decision regarding funding for repairs to a retaining wall damaged in the declared event. The amount in dispute is $311,365.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant submitted sufficient information to support an additional $41,014 to repair 40 feet of damage that was not addressed in prior versions. Therefore, I partially approve the appeal for $41,014. By copy of this letter, I request that the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
