Title: Recovery Emergency Declared
Cumberland County commissioners today declared a county state of emergency "for
the purpose of planning, readiness and the recovery of costs" relating to
the Three Mile Island nuclear accident.
Commissioners also requested local taxing bodies submit itemization of nuclear
accident-related expenses for possible Met-Ed reimbursement.
Commissioners issued State of Disaster Emergency for possible collection of federal
and state funds to aid in normalization, Commissioner Nelson Punt said.
Commissioners also asked local government officials and school districts to "assemble
all the bills and records of overtime payments by police departments, school bus
drivers and other people that
you have asked to participate in the readiness
preparations attendant to this emergency."
