Re: Second Appeal – City of Petaluma, PA ID 097-56784-00, Storm Drain Outfall, FEMA-1628-DR-CA, Project Worksheet (PW) 1969
Dear Mr. Ghilarducci:
This is in response to a letter from your office dated September 17, 2012, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the City of Petaluma (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of a request for a change in the scope of work of PW 1969 and the de-obligation of previously approved funding.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant does not have legal responsibility for the damaged facility. 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.
