Springfield to Receive $15 Million for Storm Debris Removal Costs

Springfield, Mass. (WGGB) — Cleaning up after the October snow storm. Friday, Congressman Richard Neal announced that the city of Springfield will get more than 15 million dollars in federal funding.

That money will be used to pay for debris removal costs caused by the October snow storm and according to Mayor Domenic Sarno there is a lot of debris.

“When you look at it, we took 136,000 cubic yards of debris during the tornado. During the freak Nor’easter 500,000 cubic yards of debris was removed,” says Sarno.

In addition to snow storm debris pick up, the city of Springfield is still fixing buildings damaged by last year’s tornado.
