Miami City Commission approves $43.6M in restoration after Hurricane Irma
After Hurricane Irma, Miami started cleaning and restoring affected areas, but in a few cases, this process has been taking months. Areas such as Watson Island, for example, where damaged boat vessels are still taking space in the parking garage and marina are still waiting for help.
To help in situations like that one, Miami City Commission recently approved a resolution to accept a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and an insurance payout, each for $34,193,228 and $9,429,373 respectively.
The money will help repair parks and facilities, and it will also go to the police and fire-rescue departments.
