Metro to get $1.8M for snow removal
Metro will receive more than $2.7 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as partial reimbursement for the costs of snow removal during the storms last February and December, Metro said in a press release.
Metro spent $12.7 million on the snow removal work, which included labor overtime fees, fuel for equipment, and salt and de-icing supplies, it said.
FEMA has already given Metro $1 million for the December snowstorm, and it will receive the remainder of the money for reimbursement of the February storms.
