DuPage blizzard costs could exceed $4 million
DuPage County officials are estimating clean up costs related to last week’s blizzard will exceed $4 million.
Friday afternoon was the deadline for municipalities to submit their costs to be included in the county’s submission for federal assistance. To qualify, the county must have at least $2.9 million in submissions.
Gervino said his office will submit the county’s initial damage assessment cost tabulation to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency on Tuesday. The agency will then make a recommendation to Gov. Pat Quinn who will ultimately decide whether to seek federal assistance.
