The unmet needs of charities and houses of worship during natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy would be explored under a task force approved by the City Council on Thursday.
The group would study the recovery and rebuilding of such organizations operating in areas affected by Sandy and examine how the city might help.
“They fed people, they gave them shelter, they gave them emergency supplies, even when they themselves were inundated with the storm,” said Councilman Mark Treyger (D-Brooklyn), sponsor of the bill that would create the task force. “At minimum we have an obligation to see how we could help reimburse them for services they rendered.”
