Voters in the small town of Whiting are giving a little back. They’ve decided to make a donation to the state’s Disaster Relief Fund equal to whatever money the town gets from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay for Tropical Storm Irene damages.

Whiting voters say they made their decision with one voice on Town Meeting Day.

Vermont’s Disaster Relief Fund says roughly 7,000 Vermonters registered with FEMA following the August storm, which devastated 45 towns and affected dozens more.
