Federal lawmakers are asking the US Army Corps of Engineers to speed up the review process of Mamaroneck’s $80 million Flood Mitigation Plan. A story published on Lohud.com, New York Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and Representative Eliot Engel, composed a joint letter to the Army Corps the week of December 4th, that urged approval of the plan. The letter stated, “This plan is technically feasible, environmental appropriate, economically justified, and absolutely necessary”. The lawmakers added, “The Village of Mamaroneck has suffered enough loss, and it is unacceptable to wait any longer to take action”. It has been ten years since eight-foot gushing waters devastated more than three hundred homes and one hundred commercial buildings throughout the Village of Mamaroneck.
