Collier County, Florida — Members of the Collier County Commission approve the funds needed for next year’s annual budget.
$95 million will be used to cover Hurricane Ian cleanup costs.
Not only will the money be used to clean up the debris, it will also be used for Collier County’s stormwater and drainage system.
The commissioner also says it can be used to repair roads, bridges, parks, beaches, and county buildings.
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office also has additional funding.
Using findings from a preliminary report after Hurricane Ian, Naples city administrator Jay Boudeshwar estimates losses of nearly $1.5 billion for the city alone.
Mr Boodheshwar said: In some areas he had six to seven feet of water. Hundreds of households probably have periods when they are unable to stay at home. ”
