FEMA Wants $4 Million Back from Buffalo

So the Federal Emergency Management Agency wants $4 million back from the city because they “didn’t comply with procurement standards when contracting for debris removal and other services” related to the 2006 October snowstorm.



Who’d a thunk it?

Remember how Arborturf, the subcontractor hired by Cheektowaga’s Dreamco, came in, cut down 7,000 trees in the city, then turned around and sold the firewood back to residents for $250 a load? Good times.

The advertisement below was taken out in the Bee Newspapers while the company was in town with their chainsaws, but don’t think you’ll reach Arborturf by calling the phone number in the ad. Call it today, and you’ll reach “Sit Means Sit Dog Training.” Arborturf no longer has a Web site.
