FEMA Funding Will Help Rebuild A Village Hall Destroyed By Sandy
Lawmakers from New York say federal funding is headed to rebuild a village hall in Rockland County that was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, along with Congresswoman Nita Lowey, all Democrats, say the Federal Emergency Management Agency will allocate $4.4 million to Grand View-on-Hudson to replace the village hall. The building was condemned after Hurricane Sandy. The new village hall will be situated out of the flood zone and closer to the road. The old village hall sat directly over the Hudson River. Grand View-on-Hudson has about 300 residents nestled between the cliffs of the Palisades and the west bank of the Hudson.
