Vineland Council allocates $4M to clean up June storm

    With no guarantee that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse expenses, Vineland City Council has voted to approve $4 million in emergency spending to repair damage from the June 30 storm that rocked South Jersey.

    Most of that money will cover costs incurred by the city-owned electric company, according to the Press of Atlantic City. And about $600,000 covers costs to city departments that will have to be made up in the 2013 budget.
