Disaster area declared along Fox River

Posted by wlpo on January 6, 2010

Flooding and ice along the Fox River has already forced people from their homes.  Now it’s lead to a La Salle County Disaster Declaration for that area. 

The declaration was approved Wednesday by County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks and County Clerk Jo Ann Carretto.

          The county Emergency Management Agency says the declaration could open up opportunities for the people that live in the affected area as the situation progresses. 

A county declaration is needed before they could request state resources.
