DC to Seek FEMA Funds for Snow Cleanup

The District of Columbia will be seeking funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help pay for cleanup from the snow storm.

City officials made the announcement Monday at a press conference.

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser says the city will be "dealing with snow all of this week.'' Bowser says that since the snow stopped, officials have worked to make major roadways clear. She says she hopes that city government offices and schools, which were closed Monday, will re-open Tuesday, but no decisions have been made.

Officials say they are getting some help from outside the city. District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency Director Christopher Geldart says the city is getting a snow melter from Indiana, as well as equipment from Connecticut.
