Town gets FEMA money

T he town of Granville has received $17,300 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for damage done to town property by the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene, according to Supervisor Matt Hicks.

“We applied for the maximum, which was about $23,000. We would have loved to have gotten that, but we understand FEMA has a lot to deal with, so we understand the situation,” Hicks said. “We are happy with this.”

Hicks said the money will be used to reimburse the town for money already spent for fixing Cove Road, which was badly damaged, as well as cleaning culverts and drainage ditches.
