N.H. bill seeks flood aid for communities

0

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Manchester Sen. Ted Gatsas is sponsoring a bill designed to help New Hampshire communities pay for damage from the Mother’s Day weekend flooding last year.

The plan would allocate nearly $4 million to help 113 communities whose roads and public buildings were damaged.

Gatsas wants to cap the amount cities and towns would have to pay at $5,000, with the state promising to pick up expenses not covered by the federal government.

The approach is identical to what the Legislature approved to help communities in southwestern New Hampshire handle the October 2005 flooding.
