Snow emergency declared

1/29/09 (Thu)

According to McHenry County Sheriff Marv Sola, Gov. John Hoeven’s recent executive order issuing an emergency declaration should help local communities and the county with spiraling snow removal costs.
The governor’s declaration will make financing available to cities and counties on a cost sharing basis for snow removal and snow-related costs. Hoeven called a meeting of the Emergency Commission last week to approve an additional $1.5 million in state funding to implement the executive order.
