The City is looking for state and federal reimbursement for the emergency work it did along the Great Highway this winter.
The a section of the bluffs the Great Highway sits on crumbled into the ocean under the ravages of powerful El Nino waves in January and February, which the Department of Public Works responded to by building a controversial rock wall to shore up the bluff.
Supervisor Carmen Chu, who represents the district the wall was built in, has sponsored a resolution authorizing Public Works chief Ed Reiskin to pursue federal funding to reimburse The City for that work. Normally, that work goes through The City’s Department of Emergency Management.
The resolution is before the Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee last Monday and will be heard by the full Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
