Marilla reimbursed nearly $54,000

Nearly six months after the November snowstorm crippled Marilla, the town highway department has been reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Highway Superintendent Ronald Unverdorben said the town received a $9,100 check from FEMA to help cover expenses incurred by the storm.

In a separate payment, the town received a $44,832 dividend check from the state workers compensation board.

“That is roughly 60 percent of our premium,” said Supervisor Earl Gingerich.

According to Gingerich, Marilla stands to receive another workers compensation payment valued at nearly $6,300 in the future.
