City Receives $1.6M FEMA Reimbursement
CRANFORD, N.J. — The city of Cranford will receive $1.6 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a reimbursement for emergency repairs performed on Brookside Place School after Hurricane Irene caused severe damage to the campus in August 2011.
The school suffered extensive flood damage when flood waters reached up to two feet during the storm, the Cranford Patch reports. The city of Cranford had to initially foot the bill for flood water removal and remediation, repairs for damaged pipes and walls, and restoration of damaged items inside the school.
Students were sent to other schools in the district while the repairs were being made. Brookside Place School reopened on Feb. 27.
