St. Johns County and the City of Jacksonville Beach will be getting more money from the federal government to help with clean-up costs associated with Hurricane Irma last September.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Jacksonville Beach will get more than a million dollars as reimbursement for disposing of damaged trees, tree limbs and other storm debris.

FEMA will reimburse St. Johns County $3.5 million for debris removal.

That is in addition to the nearly $6.6 million the government has already approved for Irma-related expenses in St. Johns County.
