Re: Second Appeal–City of Fort Pierre, PA ID 117-22260-00, Environmental Compliance Temporary Levee System, FEMA-1984-DR-SD, Project Worksheets (PWs) 1987 and 1993
Dear Ms. Turman:
This is in response to a letter from your office dated June 7, 2012, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the City of Fort Pierre (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $448,310 in funding for the construction and removal of a portion (Segment 9) of a temporary levee.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that PW 1987 is eligible for Public Assistance funding in the amount of $228,310 and that PW 1993 is ineligible for Public Assistance funding. By this letter, I am requesting that the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement my decision.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
