Meeting with FEMA set for today

Now that FEMA has declared Schuylkill County eligible for public assistance to fix infrastructure damaged by the flood, its time to get down to business. There will be an applicants briefing today at 1PM for all Schuylkill County municipalities, authorities, fire and EMS stations and other non-profit organizations at the Schuylkill Haven High School Auditorium on Main Street. According to John Matz of the Schuylkill County Emergency Management Agency, this meeting will begin the process so expenses that resulted from the flooding of late June can be recovered and infrastructure can be returned to full capability. Matz said that individual meetings with representatives from FEMA will follow in the coming days and weeks.
