Sen. Menendez Announces Over $1.6 Million in Federal Sandy Relief to the Township of Wall for Storm Cleanup

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today announced $1,684,493.01 in Federal funding to the Township of Wall for equipment and contractors that helped remove debris as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

"Small towns and big cities across the state were in Superstorm Sandy's destructive path last year, and towns - like the Township of Wall - stepped up, hired contractors, and helped families and businesses clean up after the storm," said Senator Menenedez, who helped lead New Jersey's delegation in the fight for federal Sandy relief. "This funding provides much-needed relief for a Jersey Shore community, and as we get near the one-year anniversary of the storm, we continue to fight for federal funding until all communities fully recover and come back better and stronger than ever before."

The Township of Wall had over 79,000 cubic yards of debris removed following the storm using their Department of Public Works force account labor and properly procured contractors.

The four contractors were:

  • T. Farese & Sons

- Provided roll-off equipment and hauled vegetative debris

  • Hoffman Tree Service

- Cut and removed trees and hanging limbs

  • E. K. Tree, Limb, Brush Removal

- Cut and removed trees and hanging limbs

  • Material Transport
