Robinson, Tx — Local agencies are seeking out funds to reimburse them for the money they've spent in aiding West recovery efforts.
Robinson Police Department is one of the agencies that has announced that they are filing their expense reports with FEMA. Officials with the department met with emergency management in West Wednesday to start that process.
On the department's Facebook Page, they wrote:
"Please note that it is not about making money. It's about being reimbursed for our expenses as is allowed by law. We are so proud of our patrol officers for their working mostly on their days off to provide service to the community of West and to our dispatchers that worked so hard to meet the resource needs of the citizens during those important first days."
Robinson Police Department is among numerous local agencies that have assisted around the clock, providing nightly patrols and other aid.
