The town of Tiburon has been notified it is eligible for a federal grant to help with the $663,525 cost to clean up, stabilize and repair a washed-out section of Vistazo West after February storms dumped 7 inches of rain in three days. Meanwhile, work is expected to begin any day to repair a second slide on Paradise Drive that was triggered by the same storms. The California Office of Emergency Services on July 19 informed the town its request for public assistance has been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, triggering the start of a longer approval process. The town now must submit documentation of the costs incurred for all work related to the repairs near 1435 Vistazo West, off Lyford Drive. There is no guarantee that 100 percent of the costs will be fully reimbursed. (Deirdre McCrohan photo / The Ark)
