Overview: Hurricane Florence and its aftermath caused significant damage to public infrastructure, private residences, and business and commercial operations in addition to an increased demand for public services during preparation and recovery activities. Orange County has been included in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)'s disaster declaration for Hurricane Florence, making the Town eligible to apply for assistance for storm-related recovery activities. The State of North Carolina requires that the Council appoint agents to act on the Town's behalf during the Hurricane Florence assistance application process.

That the Council adopt the resolution designating Vencelin Harris, Emergency Management Coordinator, and Matthew Sullivan, Fire Chief, as agents to act on the Town's behalf during the Hurricane Florence assistance application process.

Decision Points:
* Designate Vencelin Harris, Emergency Management Coordinator and Matthew Sullivan, Fire Chief, as agents to act on the Town's behalf during Hurricane Florence assistance application process.

Key Issues:
* Council action to designate authorized Town agents is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
