Richardson Co issues disaster declaration

(KLZA)-- Richardson County Commissioners met with Emergency Management Agency Director Brian Kirkdendall Wednesday to review an Emergency Disaster Declaration signed by Commission Chairman John Cavezagie on January 13.

The disaster declaration was declared due to the snow storm and high winds experienced in Richardson County beginning January 11. The declaration was forwarded to the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency.

Commissioners commended Highway Superintendent Steve Darveau Jr. and all of the Road and Bridge Department employees on completion of the difficult task they had removing snow from county rods while fighting sub-zero temperatures and high winds in the past week.

Commissioners continued to visit with Sheriff Rick Hardesty about preparations for terminating the dispatch services through Southeast Communication 911 at Beatrice at the end of July, and returning the dispatching for the Sheriff's Office to the Law Enforcement Center and what equipment and other items need to be completed before the current agreement expires.

Richardson County has received a check in an amount of $23,353 from EMC Insurance Companies and Miller LLC resulting from the good claim experience from July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023.
