Consideration and Approval:
Post-wildfire funding advocacy letter
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
Approve the post-wildfire funding advocacy letter
On June 18, 2021 Governor Ducey signed into law HB2001 appropriations; fire suppression. The bill makes funding available for wildfire initiatives, including post-fire hazard mitigation, but is limited to wildfires that occurred in fiscal year 2021. Post-wildfire flooding from the Museum Fire burn scar is therefore ineligible for funding. Staff have drafted a letter to Governor Ducey asking him to urge the legislature to expand the relevant statutes to allow funds from HB 2001 to be used for any post-wildfire impacts that are currently impacting a community.
