Re: Second Appeal – Town of Boonton, FEMA-4021-DR-NJ, PA ID 027-06610-00, Project Worksheet (PW) 1539 – Slope Stabilization – Immediate Threat
Dear Mr. Schulz:
This is in response to a letter from your office dated September 23, 2013, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Town of Boonton (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of funding in connection with the stabilization of a slope at Grace Lord Park.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant failed to provide sufficient documentation demonstrating that an immediate threat to life or improved property existed as a result of the slope failure. Therefore, I am denying the appeal.
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
