Final flood dollars should be in soon, will go toward repairs

NORWICH – The last of the state and federal flood money slated for the Town of Norwich should arrive by the end of next week, Supervisor Dave Law said Monday night during a town board meeting.

The town has received just over $500,000 in aid from the Federal Emergency Management Office and its state counterpart in the year since the flood of June 2006. Law said $328,494.23 more should arrive a week from Thursday.

The board decided part of the money will go toward catching-up on flood-delayed road improvements and making repairs to rafters in the town pole barn. Highway Superintendent Stan Foulds said he’s planned roughly $85,600 worth of oil and stone and leveling work for the Burdick-Medbury, Lower Ravine, Meadow View Heights, Grotsinger, Wells, Jones and Old Stage roads.
