NORWICH– The Town of Norwich has continued to seek federal reimbursement for expenses incurred after widespread flooding damaged roadways, homes and businesses last year, and it is finally starting to arrive in large sums.
June’s record-breaking flood cost the town approximately $744,000 in repairs. Nearly nine months later, the town expects to receive $220,000 from the Federal Emergency Managment Association this week.
“Money is starting to flow; it just takes time,” Supervisor David C. Law said. All expenses except for $257,455 due to Burrell’s Excavating of Norwich for repairs have been paid.
