WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Franklin County, Pa., submitted a detailed application to have snow-removal costs from February reimbursed by the federal government.
The application was completed in early March, but additional work must be completed with it, Emergency Services Director Dave Donohue said. Notification about the reimbursement amount probably will take a few months, he said.
"Between everyone, the county and municipalities, we submitted just under $800,000," Donohue said.
Agencies can submit applications for things like equipment and personnel costs, as well as repairs needed for damaged snowplows, he said.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said nearly $60 million could be available for county and municipal governments that submitted applications for hazard mitigation grants.
