Jim Planck writes in The Daily Mail that the Town of Catskill is looking for additional funds to repair damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene. At the Town Board meeting Tuesday, Feb. 7, Councilman Kevin Lennon reported a documentation package was submitted to the U.S. National Conversation Resources Service, Jan. 31. Lennon said the NCRS is expected to send a task force to Greene County to examine flood damage not covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Sites identified for possible NCRS assistance include: Woodstock Ave. in Palenville, Drummond Falls Road and bridge, the junction of Route 23A and Bogart Road, and the culvert on Pennsylvania Ave. NCRS could cover up to 75 percent of the repair costs.
