Even though there are no restrictions on the county the Labette County Commission still needed to extended their disaster declaration. Emergency Management Director Charlie Morse says this is so they can receive federal funding.
Morse says he's heard a lot from the public on reopening the county and the press release posted on their Facebook page has around 20,000 views. The commissioners unanimously approved the new disaster declaration which went in to affect immediately.
The commission will not meet for their regularly scheduled meeting on June 1st their next meeting will be June 8th at 9:00am.
