BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Small Business Association says small, nonfarm businesses in 22 North Dakota counties and neighboring counties in Montana and South Dakota are eligible to apply for low-interest disaster loans.
The Stutsman County Commission issued an emergency declaration during a special meeting Thursday.
The declaration cites heavy rain in the northern portion of the county occurring after the end of the previous presidential disaster declaration on July 20.
Jerry Bergquist, Stutsman County emergency manager, said the county estimated more than $277,000 in damage to township roads in a three-township area in the northeast corner of the county.
The Stutsman County Commission approved spending about $1 million on roads in need of repair due to water Monday. The problem, however, is the commission has about $3 million worth of roads to fix but bidders hesitated to repair them.
By most counts, Debbie is a beautiful girl, with dark eyes, a black-and-white coat and — her most distinctive feature — a pair of foot-long horns.
The yearling heifer is the first Texas longhorn to be exhibited at the Stutsman County Fair, said Kali Carlson, 13, of the Bustling Beavers 4-H club.
“Most beef breeds are laid back and easy to maneuver. Longhorns are made to survive,” Carlson said. “It was a little harder getting her trained because she wanted to do her own thing.”
The process of obtaining a presidential disaster declaration for Stutsman County continued with a preliminary damage assessment conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency Wednesday.
The assessment is intended to verify the damage level to public infrastructure listed by Stutsman County and Jamestown.
The Stutsman County Commission unanimously declared a snow emergency at its meeting Tuesday.
In its declaration, the county refers to excessive snowfall amounts occurring particularly in December and January. The county recorded 10.5 inches of snow in November, 25 inches in December and 31 inches in January. Road Superintendent Mickey Nienow told commissioners the road crew has been out plowing snow almost daily since December. He added he’s called in seasonal help as well.
Stutsman County Emergency Management has launched a new blog to help area residents prepare for emergencies. The blog will also be used to provide information during emergencies.
The blog is titled “Stutsman Emergency Management: Are You Prepared?” and can be found at the website areyouprepared.areavoices.com. The blog is also being featured on The Jamestown Sun’s website, www.jamestownsun.com. Featured blogs are found in the website’s center column under the words “Area Voices.”
