The Village of Lindenhurst has submitted nearly a quarter of a million dollars in storm damage reimbursement costs to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The bulk of the costs — more than $204,000 — come from the collection and disposal of debris from last summer’s Tropical Storm Irene. That storm also cost the village more than $4,800 in sidewalk replacements and another several thousand dollars in emergency protective measures, as well as damage repairs to the Rainbow Senior Center, the main firehouse and marina roofs, and the fence at village park.

The village is still making repairs to the marina, but the northern end of the parking lot, the bathrooms and all boat slips remain open to the public.
