The first allotment of federal funds from the $50.5 billion emergency relief measure enacted for Superstorm Sandy victims is set to be released this week. Now 100 days since Sandy hit, some areas are still scenes of destruction and debris.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports from New York:
One hundred days later, many towns in the northeast are still dealing with Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath.
In Mansfield Township, New Jersey, over 3,000 cars were dumped in the middle of a lot without permission so insurers could inspect them and recyclers and auto parts firms could come get them.
Officials like Mansfield Township committee member, Fred Clark say they’ve had enough of the mess.
(Clark) “They just did everything like we were country bumpkins and nobody in town likes that.”
Now the Mansfield Township Mayor wants the cars removed within 30 days.
(Mayor Arthur Puglia) “Looks like a junkyard, a major junkyard.”
This after the township zoning board denied a variance Monday night to allow the cars to remain.
