That's a lot of friggin' debris.
As Ubu Roi puts it: "[Agenda item]Number 3.a. is the jaw-dropper. Nearly $100 million to remove debris? Wow. Just wow."
Don't have too much of a heart attack, though -- the deal includes eventual reimbursement from FEMA. So it will all be federal money.
And therefore not any of your tax dollars. Oh, wait.......
