POMEROY — Robert Byer, director of the Meigs County Emergency Management Agency, is asking that townships and villages call or send in their force account figures from the June 29 storm.
“We cannot expect any assistance until all figures are in,” said Byer.
According to the EMA director, Meigs County must meet a figure of $3.39 per capita in order to qualify. That would be $80,600 in damages to public property or force account costs in clean up.
“Townships and villages should complete a force account to track work they have done to clear roads, trees and debris. This would include any overtime, extra help, and equipment usage along with regular hours of personnel. The overtime and extra help are the only two items eligible for funding. The regular hours and overtime are used to calculate and verify the equipment hours, he explained.
If equipment is used for ten hours, then employees’ hours worked need to match equipment. An up to date FEMA rate schedule for equipment including fuel usage is available at the EMA office and can be faxed to the political sub-division.
Should anyone have a question Byer asked that they come into the office at 117 East Memorial Drive Suite 4 or call the EMA office at (740) 992-4541.
