Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente Jr. today urged local business owners who suffered damages in two severe storms of 2011 to contact the Oneida County Department of Planning as a first step in a process that could result in funding to address damages caused by Hurricane Irene and/or Tropical Storm Lee. The money is being made available by the New York State Office of Community Renewal.
Business owners must initially fill out a needs assessment and must later provide appropriate documentation for losses not covered by insurance and or other assistance. The assessments must be completed by April 3rd. To begin the process and determine eligibility, contact Regina Venettozzi at the Oneida County Planning Department. The number for the Planning Department is (315) 798-5710. Venettozzi can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
