Possibility for Disaster Declaration in Labette County


There is potential for another disaster declaration in Labette County regarding COVID-19.


Emergency Management Director Charlie Morse spoke with the county commission this morning regarding the possibility. Morse thought there could have been an update, regarding the recent increase of cases from the Omicron variant, from Governor Laura Kelly's office this afternoon but now it looks like it could be Wednesday. The county was under a disaster declaration for COVID from March 2020 to May 2021 but let it expire in May. The purpose of a declaration would be so the county can receive any financial assistance from the state regarding COVID.


In other business, the county received an invoice for their portion of the new lighting at the county fair arena. They also received the year-end outcomes for community corrections.
