Town of Union Buyouts
1/9/2013 (Updated 7:03:23 PM)The Town of Union has received a final letter of approval stating that FEMA has accepted the town's application for the buyout program.
In total the buyout is estimated at more than 17 million dollars, and will cover all 176 properties.
FEMA will pay seventy five percent of the costs and the remainder of the costs will be picked up by property owners and a grant from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development Under the Community Development Block Grant.
"But we are now ready to go and we are looking forward to moving along with our residents and hopefully through the process of summertime before fall we'll have most of the homes down and our community will be moving forward," said Town of Union Supervisor Rose Sotak.
Rose Sotak notes that at this time that there is no need to come to the town of union building or call regarding the buyout program.
Informational meetings have been scheduled by neighborhoods,
and information can be viewed on the Town of Union website.
