Thanks goes out to Senator Schumer for writing to the United States Army Corps of Engineers to accelerate storm protection efforts for the Rockaway community. General Todd T. Semonite, has signed the Chief’s Report for the Hurricane Sandy Reformation Study. The next step will take place in Washington where the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, Ricky Dale James will meet with other USACE officials to review the plans for final approval.
He has ninety days to complete the process. It is our hope he will move quickly with the approval, hopefully before the seventh anniversary of Super Storm Sandy.
