Re: Second Appeal – Village of Waterford, FEMA-4020-DR-NY, PA ID 091-78520-00, Project Worksheet (PW) 7604 – Pre-disaster Conditions
Dear Mr. Feeney:
This is in response to your letter dated February 7, 2014, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Village of Waterford (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $335,178.24 in Public Assistance funding for road repair.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant has failed to demonstrate that the damage to its network of roads was caused by Hurricane Irene, not pre-existing damage. Therefore, I am denying the appeal. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 C.F.R. § 206.206, Appeals.
William W. Roche
Public Assistance Division
