A proposal by a Queens congressman would allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency to back off in its pursuit to recoup aid mistakenly paid out to Superstorm Sandy victims.
As part of the project, wetlands, which will act as a sponge to absorb storm water, will be built at East River Park, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported.
Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder, D-Far Rockaway, said he’s asked FEMA to stop requesting the repayments, but the agency says it’s required by law to try to recoup money it sent out by mistake.
The second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy arrived Wednesday in New Jersey, where recovery is happening unevenly, with many houses, boardwalks and businesses rebuilt, but many other people still unable to return to their homes.
A major complaint in the days following Sandy was that customers didn’t know what repairs crews were working on when their power would be restored.
