FEMA Disaster Recovery Center Has Opened at Glenville Fire Station

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has opened an office in Glenville to assist residents and business owners with disaster recovery from the remnants of Hurricane Ida which resulted in surging waters even in parts of town that don’t typically flood.

This is good news for residents in various parts of town who on Sept 4 experienced major flooding, with trees and lines down, and roads closed to traffic.
