Jonathan Raser (Jonathan.Raser@tetratech.com]) has been retained by the town to help the town come up with flood mitigation initiatives for both private property owners (businesses and homeowners) and for town projects (gym at the Theodore Young Community Center was flooded).
At last nights Town Board meeting Mr. Raser identified grant opportunities in the wake of recent storms (Irene and Lee). The focus: acquiring and demolishing substantially damaged properties in the special flood hazard area (100 year floodplain). There are also grant opportunities available for those who want to elevate their homes (similar to what we did with some homes on Babbitt Court a number of years ago). There may be future grant opportunities available for additional flood relief initiatives.

If you are interested in being considered for this grant and if you have experienced flooding please complete the following form and return. If you send me a copy, it would be appreciated. The form should be completed promptly since the federal government has a late February deadline.

Our Town Board meeting is archived on the town website: www.greenburghny.com. Look up Town Board archives (on left side of the page-Jan 25 meeting). This was the first topic of the meeting.
