Delta County Commissioners Don Suppes, Mark Roeber and Mike Lane read from the letter from Department of Homeland Security mitigation division director Jeanine Petterson at their Feb. 5 meeting.
The letter announces the approval of the Delta County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan update as meeting the requirements of federal regulations for a local hazard mitigation plan.
During its regular meeting on Jan. 9, Delta County emergency manager Chris Stewart talked with the Crawford Board of Trustees about the multijurisdictional hazard mitigation plan and the town's resolution to adopt the plan. His brief presentation identified the potential hazards the Town of Crawford should consider, and how it could reduce and deal with these risks.
Paonia trustees unanimously passed a resolution officially adopting the 2018 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for Delta County as its official hazard mitigation plan.
"This is the resolution to confirm the town participation" in the plan, said town administrator Ken Knight.
Following more than a year of meetings between Delta County staff and key stakeholders, Delta County's draft 2018 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is now available for public review and comment.
Delta County, the City of Delta, Orchard City, Cedaredge, Paonia, Crawford and Hotchkiss as well as five fire protection districts and the Delta County School District participated in the process of drafting the plan.
