FEMA wants reimbursement payment from Charlotte County

FEMA Wants Reimbursment Payment

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - Charlotte County may have to return millions of dollars to FEMA.

Hurricane Charley devastated the county back in August of 2004. It took years, for homeowners and business owners to recover and rebuild from the Category 4 storm and the reconstruction took even longer in other areas of Charlotte County.

FEMA reimbursed the county for $37 million in projects but the agency recently notified the county that it overpaid.
