City receives federal assistance for snowstorm

Continue reading below

The city was recently awarded $200,332 in federal assistance to help defray the costs it incurred in the massive February winter storm that crippled much of the area. The Feb. 8-10 storm dumped more than 2 feet of snow in parts of Middlesex and Norfolk counties, burying roads and neighborhoods. The grant was awarded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s public assistance program, which covers 75 percent of eligible costs for approved applicants. Eligible costs include expenses incurred for snow plowing, overtime, equipment, materials, and contracts. “I’m pleased with the support from the federal government, and pleased our work to obtain this critical FEMA funding was successful,” Mayor Scott D. Galvin said in a prepared statement. “These kinds of storms can financially cripple cities and towns. We’ll continue to pursue every avenue to qualify for any assistance that saves taxpayers’ money.”
