Woodbine Mayor William Pikolycky announced that the Borough will hold a Public Hearing on August 18, at 7:00 p.m., in the main meeting room of the municipal services building to discuss flood mitigation.
The purpose of this hearing is to explain federal and state guidelines; to review eligible and proposed program activities; to consider proposals for an application under the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program; and to receive citizen comments and recommendations.
The Borough of Woodbine is considering the submission of a Public Facilities Application for $400,000 for storm drainage improvements. This $400,000 request is being submitted in conjunction with a FEMA application for an overall storm drainage project of approximately $1.5 million. This FEMA application was the result of Woodbine Borough homeowners being significantly impacted by last March’s flooding.
