Re: Second Appeal – Bay St. Louis School District, PA ID 045-00E4A-00, Tree Replacement, FEMA-1604-DR-MS, Project Worksheet (PW) 11157
Dear Mr. Latham:
This is in response to your letter dated July 25, 2013, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Bay St. Louis School District (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $21,900 for replacing trees in accordance with the city’s zoning ordinance.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that replacing trees is not eligible for reimbursement under the Public Assistance program. Therefore, I am denying the appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206, Appeals.
