Jacksonville has been approved for over $1.2 million to help the City defray the costs of debris removal for Hurricane Irma under FEMA’s Public Assistance Program.
The funds, totaling $1,221,219, will reimburse the city for the collection of debris throughout the City of Jacksonville between Sept. 4 and Sept. 17 following the September 2017 storm.
During that time period, FEMA says city workers and contractors gathered an undetermined quantity of vegetative debris and construction/demolition debris from roads and public property for removal.
First Coast News has requested a total number of the funds given to the City of Jacksonville from FEMA following Hurricane Irma.
