Re: Second Appeal - Erwinville Fire Department Sub District 5, PA ID 121-UJIIS-00, Training Hall, FEMA-1786-DR-LA, Project Worksheet (PW) 4837
Dear Mr. Davis:
This is in response to your letter dated July 22, 2013, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Erwinville Fire Department Sub-District 5 (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $42,004 in additional funding for the replacement of its training hall.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the replacement of the facility is not eligible, because the cost estimate of the repair is less than 50 percent of the replacement cost. Further, the demolition of the facility was not required to reduce or eliminate an immediate threat to life, safety, or property. 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.
William W. Roche
