ANALYSIS

The City has significant, ongoing resiliency funding needs (eg., stormwater, water/sewer, seawalls, etc.)

 

At the January 27 Resiliency Workshop, the idea of a resiliency fund surfaced.

 

Interestingly, Surfside recently announced the creation of such a fund that will house money from developers with an equal match from the town.

 

The committee discussions should focus on potential uses and sources of funds.
