WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Cleaning up from Hurricane Florence will cost the City of Wilmington about $25 million.
At its meeting Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., Wilmington City Council will consider $2,919,416 more to cover the final estimated costs of debris removal and repairs to buildings caused by Florence.
Council has already approved about $21 million for the clean-up.
The city says the federal government reimburses up to 75 percent of eligible costs. The city expects much of this cost to be reimbursed within the next two years.
