For the past five fiscal years, the City has utilized the services of two firms to assist with ongoing FEMA appeals processes related to Hurricane Wilma: O’Briens Response Management and the Washington, DC office of the Baker Donelson law firm. This assistance needs to continue until we receive a final decision on the one outstanding appeal. The City’s use of these firms over the past four years has resulted in successful appeals of over $2,000,000. The remaining appeal is the result of an error on the part of FEMA and the State but the best course of action was to file an appeal.

The City won the appeal. Still awaiting a final obligation from FEMA headquarters and will then process a closeout of Hurricane Wilma.
