A resolution giving the Cumberland County Veterans Assistance Council (CCVAC) $29,886.50 of the restitution funds that are a part of the plea agreement with former VSO Mark Daniels was approved in a 15-1 vote at Monday's County Commission meeting. Jack Fogel, CCVAC coordinator, requested $25,000 as it would make the CCVAC job easier in terms of paperwork that must be filed with the government. He also noted that the council would not use the money all at once. The $29,886.50 from the resolution represents the $25,000 requested plus the weekly payments that have been made toward the final sum of $100,000 that must be paid by Daniels under terms of the plea arrangement.
The costs for cleanup due to damage from the ice storm from February are beginning to come in to the county. During Monday night’s Cumberland County Commission meeting it was revealed that FEMA is funding 87.5% of the cleanup costs, while Cumberland County is responsible for 12.5%. The efforts to clean up, through June, are estimated to be $3,600,000 of which Cumberland County is ultimately responsible for approximately $450,000. According to Commissioner Allen Foster, because the funds are reimbursable by FEMA through TEMA, that means that Cumberland County must cash flow the entire sum of money and then request reimbursement which is likely to take a minimum of 30 days. This could create a cash flow issue for our county. The Budget Committee and Finance Department are monitoring the situation to prevent the County from getting in a tight financial spot during the process.
