PW ID# 157; Eligible Costs
Citation: FEMA-1606-DR-TX, City of Moulton, PW #157
The City of Moulton (City), in anticipation of a direct hit from Hurricane Rita, contracted an electrical contractor to be on standby in case power restoration was required due to storm damage. However, the City was spared damage from Hurricane Rita. FEMA prepared PW #157 on November 15, 2005, for $0.00, stating that standby costs were not eligible for FEMA reimbursement. On January 11, 2006, the City submitted a first appeal for the amount of $2,817.18 for its electrical contractor standby costs. On April 18, 2006, FEMA denied the appeal, indicating that the contractor had not performed eligible work. The City submitted a second appeal on January 10, 2007. No new information was provided with the appeal.
Is the City’s electrical contractor standby costs related to the performance of eligible emergency work?
