FEMA Gives NJ Towns $5 Million

The hard-hit towns of  of Brick and Freehold will get $5 million from FEMA and more from the state of New Jersey for Hurricane Sandy cleanup and repair, , according to Governor Christie. Storm surge, flooding and widespread power outages lasted for more than three weeks in Brick and everything including the sewer system was overwhelmed.

Freehold ran up big bills to pay for  police, public works and it’s sewage plant, as it try to restore some semblance of normal life.  So this is federal money well-spent in both towns.
