The Pottawatomie County Commission has approved a 60-day extension of the Emergency Declaration that was originally put in place in late March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Emergency Management Director Jennifer Merrow says doing so will give the county more flexibility and access to resources during an uncertain time.
Although the emergency declaration was extended, Merrow says the county’s Emergency Operation Center team will soon be scaling back.
They will continue meeting on Wednesdays and will also meet with the county commission on Friday mornings.
