Richardson Co Board to consider Emergency Disaster Declaration

(KLZA)-- Richardson County Commissioners will discuss whether to pass an Emergency Disaster Declaration when they meet Wednesday morning at the Courthouse in Falls City.

The declaration would be due to the January 11, snowstorm and high winds causing damage to public and private property, disrupting service and endangering the health and safety of the citizens of Richardson County and all cities and villages within Richardson County.

As of Tuesday morning, Richardson County Road Department crews were still working on clearing county roads of drifts. The snow and high winds have made clearing roads over much of Southeast Nebraska extremely difficult and time consuming.

Commissioners will receive an update during the meeting on storm damage and snow removal as well as using private contractors for assistance with snow removal from county roads.
