Ocean County Gets Storm Relief From Uncle Sam

Ocean County government is back on solid financial footing following two hefty awards from Uncle Sam. During Thursday’s Board of Freeholders meeting in Toms River, officials said the county received $32 million dollars in storm assistance money from FEMA that replaces a portion of the $72 million dollars they laid out to pay for wet debris removal from Superstorm Sandy. They’re expecting an additional $40 million dollars.

The Freeholders say the county was also awarded $7.2 million dollars in storm relief grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Freeholders introduced an amendment to include the funds into the County Budget. They’ll be holding a public hearing on the amendment and a finalized budget next week.
