Now that the snow is finally melting across southern Cayuga County, local highway crews are getting the chance to assess the condition of roads that were damaged by last July’s floods.
Cayuga County Emergency Management Acting Director Niel Rivenburgh said on Tuesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News many of the fixes put in place from July through the arrival of winter were temporary.
He added there’s already some significant damage caused by winter snow and summer storms.
The damage estimate before winter arrived was pegged at about $4.5 Million.
Congressman John Katko announced last month he’s joined with Representatives Claudia Tenney and John Faso to ask FEMA Administrator Brock Long to reconsider the agency’s decision to deny a disaster declaration for counties devastated by last July’s floods.
