The question was a simple YES/NO.

Does the fire department grant information as submitted satisfy FEMA requirements?

But Jason Auth from FEMA refused to write either in response to my query.


Once again, another level of your tax dollars trying to duck the issue.

Thank you.

Then can you please tell me if the grant reviewers/approval committee deems the information on page 17 of application to be accurate based on the information that I address in my query?

On page 17 in the section titles Element #3 – Financial need, I see that there is a requirement upon the applying agency to disclose the organizations inability to address the need without federal assistance. Including disclosure of “other actions the applicant has taken to meet their staffing needs”

Prior to submitting application in late February 2012, administration and commissioners of SKF&R approved a ballot measure in January of 2012 for an Excess Levy to meet staffing needs but there is no mention of this in the application. The April measure failed but the Excess Levy was again approved for placement on the August ballot.
Like this application, the Excess Levy also states that about $2 million will be used to hire and retain 9 firefighters.
