Pennington County is just a few weeks from receiving reimbursement for costs related to the October blizzard.

The county is looking at a bill that ranges between $300,000-$500,000, according to Emergency Management Director, Dustin Willett. He told commissioners Tuesday morning that there are two sub-grants available to the county that relate to debris removal and emergency protection.

Commissioners voted to accept all of the money that the county qualifies for concerning debris removal.

For the first 30 days of the cleanup, Willet says FEMA will pay for 85 percent of the cost, 31–90 days FEMA pays 80 percent, and anything after 90 days they pay 75 percent.

"What the board did today was voted to basically accept that sub-grant application, as it was prepared by the FEMA Project Specialist," said Willet.

The second sub-grant for emergency protection will be discussed at a future meeting.
