PERRYSBURG — Rep. Tom Reed announced Thursday FEMA has approved $1.2 million in disaster funding following the 2009 and 2014 storms which ravaged Perrysburg.
“When our office was notified of this ridiculous delay we immediately got in contact with FEMA in order to figure out what exactly was going on,” Reed said. “We care about providing disaster relief and this bureaucratic delay was not fair for the hard-working people of Perrysburg and the Seneca Nation.”
“The town of Perrysburg would like to thank Tom and his staff for their assistance with helping us secure approval for the repair of Prospect Street and keeping this project on track,” Town of Perrysburg Supervisor Jennifer Dabolt said. “The $1.2 million project will rebuild a section of the road and repair damage caused by Cattaraugus Creek flooding in 2014. This is a main corridor in the area with a travel volume of over 2,000 vehicles per day and a primary access road for over 100 homes.
