Cumberland County, N.J., isn’t waiting for help from the feds to clean up flood damage.
Freeholders there voted last night to use $800,000 for emergency repairs.
Gov. Chris Christie has declared a disaster to ask for federal help, but last night’s vote would take money from a capital improvement fund for some things that just can’t wait.
The Vineland Daily Jounral reports the money hadn’t been assigned to another project, and could use the $800,000 to make a small dent in the estimated $20 million worth of storm damage.
