Storm Costs for Georgia Local Governments Tops $19 Million
(AJC) — Georgia governments shelled out $19 million to tackle last month’s snow and ice storm, a figure that could increase as local officials finalize their numbers. Despite the costs, local jurisdictions should probably not expect any federal reimbursements. Ken Davis, spokesman for the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, said what local government spent during the storm has not yet been examined to determine if any would meet requirements for federal aid. But he doubts local government’s main expense, personnel costs related to snow removal, will qualify.
