FEMA continues to send macroburst reimbursement to state for pass through to towns

Now that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has passed along some money for debris removal operations in the wake of the severe storms, local towns are waiting for the funding to be passed along from the state.  The Public Assistance Grant reimburses Fairfield and New Haven counties for actions taken in the immediate response and during recovery.  New Fairfield First Selectman Pat Del Monaco noted that the FEMA reimbursement numbers from the May 2018 macroburst have been finalized. The amount to be received for debris removal $1,900,920 and administrative costs of $133,190. The total reimbursement is $2,131,052, which is approximately 85% of the total expenditures from the storm.  New Fairfield's Finance Director noted that this money is expected to be received in 3 or 4 weeks.
