FEMA to reimburse Cedar Rapids for Sinclair demolition

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The city of Cedar Rapids will get help from FEMA for costs from demolishing the Sinclair Meatpacking site.

FEMA announced Monday it will give the city more than $20 million. The funds will partially reimburse money spent on debris removal at the site in 2010. The buildings at Sinclair were heavily damaged by fires and by flooding in 2008.

Cedar Rapids will also receive $11 million for temporary generators used to protect flood damaged buildings after the water receded.
