SBA makes low-interest loans available to July 2017 flood victims

Small Business Administration

February 20, 2018—With FEMA officially denying NYS's appeal to label the July storm a disaster, we now know that there will not be any FEMA assistance for the July storm.

Fortunately, the U.S. Small Business Administration has made it possible to allow businesses and homeowners to apply for low-interest disaster loans. The SBA will be placing customer service representatives at four Disaster Loan Outreach Centers to answer questions about the disaster loan program and help individuals complete their applications.

You can download the official press release and fact sheet that explains the details of the loan.

From the Mayor: Water Updates

February 17, 2018—We've had several water updates from the February Board Meeting, including how we have expanded our water testing methods to include GenX and other PFOA replacement chemicals. We have shared those results on the water website. Also, testing showed new PFC chemicals detected in the "midfluent" portion of the GAC. This is between tank 1 and tank 2 of the two-tank GAC filtration system. Tap water continues to be non-detect for all PFCs.

Additionally there was an update on alternate water supply, an update on data results from the first round of blood testing (2016-2017), and an update on the second round of blood testing (to begin this spring).

All of the information from this meeting is posted on the Testing page of the water website under the February 14, 2018 entry.

Please feel free to share this post and the links. As always, feel free to reach out or call with any questions.

The newspaper of record for the Village of Hoosick Falls is the Troy Record. Public notices will be posted in the paper.
