Town officials in Canandaigua announced last week that they will seek Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding to restore infrastructure damaged in the July 9 storm.
The move aims to prevent the multimillion-dollar repair costs from directly impacting local taxpayers.
Homeowners who have sustained damage are encouraged to document all flood-related repairs for insurance purposes.
Meanwhile, the Town’s highway department is addressing road, shoulder, culvert, and drainage issues brought on by the flooding.
West Gibson Street was closed for 10 days due to the intense flooding in that storm.
