Congressman Cloud Sends Letter to FEMA Regarding Pending Projects in Port Aransas

Congressman Michael Cloud urged Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Pete Gaynor to complete Hurricane Harvey recovery projects that are still pending in the City of Port Aransas.

In a letter to Administrator Gaynor, signed also by Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, the Members of Congress highlighted the fact that the delays have arisen from complications associated with high turnover rates among FEMA contractors.   

The letter states: “Since Hurricane Harvey, the City of Port Aransas has worked tirelessly with FEMA representatives to identify damages and move recovery projects forward. Unfortunately, the city’s public safety building and fire station remain in their post-Harvey condition, forcing first responders to operate out of temporary mobile office units unsuitable for long-term operations.  This is especially troubling for the city now that COVID-19 and the new hurricane season are a constant threat to public health and safety.”

Congressman Cloud added
, “First responders shouldn’t be the last to receive recovery aid. It’s been over three years since Hurricane Harvey made landfall, and Port Aransas has made a lot of progress in its recovery efforts. FEMA should expedite these remaining critical projects.”
