Jo Co Approves Connelly as Agent for Federal Funds

Johnson County Commission
Johnson County Commission

Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connelly was approved by the commissioners to act as the county's agent for receiving Federal emergency assistance funds.
The appointment came at last week's commission meeting, in light of President Obama's recent releasing of Federal Disaster Funds at the request of Wyoming Governor Matt Mead.
Commission Chair Smokey Wildeman explained Resolution #433 to the commissioners.
Johnson County is now set to receive funds for damages caused by the unusually wet Spring and unprecedented snowmelt runoff this year.
Some of the damages the county can be reimbursed for include those from flooding, roads and bridges that may have washed out, and other infrastructure damage.
FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has estimated damage to public infrastructure in the state at $4.2 million, and an additional $2.8 million for emergency repairs to roads and highways in the state.
