Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement regarding Governor Ron DeSantis’ request for increased federal cost share for the Hurricane Michael recovery:
“Thank you, Governor Ron DeSantis, for taking action for areas impacted by Hurricane Michael in the Florida Panhandle. Through his leadership, he has made it absolutely clear that we are not alone in the recovery process.
“It is devastating to see families and businesses still struggling six months later, but this increased funding would make a major difference in recovery. With the 2019 Hurricane Season quickly approaching, every dollar will help this area get back to some level of normalcy before the next storm hits.”
