Summary: The president declared a major disaster declaration for Oklahoma, including Haskell County, on January 5, 2001, following a severe ice storm in late December 2000 and early 2001. The federal cost share initially was 75%, but was increased to 100% on March 13, 2001. Haskell County awarded a debris removal and disposal contract to Phillips and Jordan on February 6, 2001, for $10.80 per cubic yard. Debris removal operations continued from February to June 2001. The County requested $3.85 million for debris removal operations. FEMA approved $3.45 million and denied $310,667 because it determined that the County picked up and disposed of ineligible debris. The Regional Director approved $67,522 on first appeal. The County requests reimbursement of $242,897 in the second appeal.
Issues: Has the County provided information that supports its claim for additional reimbursement?
Rationale: 44 CFR §206.224
