Long Branch, NJ – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone (NJ-06) announced more than $8 million federal grants for repairs and reimbursements for emergency measures performed due to Superstorm Sandy.

“Communities, cities, and counties are far from fully rebuilt from Sandy, and they are still taking financial hits due to the many unanticipated costs they continue to face,” said Congressman Pallone.  “We are all in this together, and these communities shouldn’t have to bear the entire cost of the storm alone.”

The following grants were awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a result of Superstorm Sandy:

  • $1,257,465 to Middlesex County for repair of the boardwalk at Old Bridge Waterfront Park
  • $3,714,294 to Monmouth County Public Works for costs required to pump out reservoirs, clear blocked roads, set up evacuation routes, detours, and block hazardous areas
  • $1,291,688 to Monmouth County for costs associated with the Sheriff'’s Department supplying security at the shelters, conducting welfare checks, performing search and rescue, and to man emergency call centers
  • $1,734,561 to the Township of Woodridge for contractors used to load, haul, and dispose of approximately 22,000 cubic yards of debris

quote of the day

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).
