Flood Declaration Terminated

County Finishes Emergency Repairs

The flood waters of June having receded, the Valley County Commissioners on Tuesday passed a resolution terminating the disaster declaration.

The resolution states that the county has completed emergency repairs to infrastructure from the flood.

Mark Gruener, the District 6 Disaster and Emergency Services representative, and Valley County DES Rick Seiler presented the draft resolution and also a draft letter for the commissioners to send to Gov. Steve Bullock in appreciation of his “timely efforts.” The spring floods were Bullock’s first experience with declaring an emergency, and he assisted in procuring a Crisafulli pump for Glasgow from the Corps of Engineers’ Fort Peck Project office through the Omaha District headquarters of the Corps.

“The governor went through pretty extraordinary hoops to get the pump from Fort Peck,” Gruener said.

A Presidential Disaster Declaration is pending, according to the letter.
