Just a few things.
One, thank you to all the people sending in information. I am
now being a little overwhelmed with what people know “behind the
scenes” of West Vincent government. I have my research cut out
Two, I thought this important to get out right away and I
wouldn't count on any other “local” source to do it at this
We just received word that Chester County is included for
Individual Assistance under the Tropical Storm Lee
Presidential Disaster Declaration for Pennsylvania. This means
that individuals, families, and businesses will be eligible
for a wide range of federal benefits including eligibility for
grants and loans, including Small Business Administration
(SBA) loans. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
will be the lead agency for this working with the Pennsylvania
Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and the Department of
Emergency Services (DES). The Disaster Recovery Center (DRC)
we have operating in the Government Services Center in Chester
County will be able to assist residents and business impacted
by both storms.
Please give this information the widest distribution possible.
If you are aware of areas that were impacted by Tropical Storm
Lee, please let them know they can register for assistance the
Telephone: 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY at 800-462-7585. Those
who use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS) can call
Internet: Individuals may apply for disaster assistance online
By Smartphone or tablet: using the web address - m.fema.gov
Through FEMA's App for android phones, which can be downloaded
Residents can also visit the Disaster Recovery Center that is
open in the Chester County Government Services, 601 Westtown
Road, Room 042, in West Chester, PA to register for assistance
or to ask questions. Residents can visit this Center for both
Hurricane Irene AND Tropical Storm Lee related damages. The
Center operates seven days a week 10AM to 7PM.
Third, West Vincent Township has a new website. It is very nice,
with a colonial type look to it. There are several approved
minutes and videos now missing but since this website is just
coming up, I should hope that will be straightened out in the
next couple days. Otherwise, it is a nice theme. Fairly simple
design. I'm not sure if I like the navigation yet but everything
new takes some getting used to.
As usual, if you
want to be on or off my list, or have some comments or
suggestions, or know someone who would like to be on the list,
please let me know. Feel free to forward this email on to
anyone you think might be interested. Especially though, if
you don't want to continue to receive my mails, please tell me.
I'll take you off the list and confirm that I have done so.
Just hit reply to this email or write to email@example.com
To see all my previous mailings including those you may have
missed please go to chickenman medianewsonline com. Replace the
spaces with dots. Sorry you have to do that bit of work, but if
I had put in the dots this mail would probably be blacklisted.
