OC Commission seeks new emergency director
Also at their meeting Monday, the commissioners expressed relief that FEMA funds are coming in now to repair roads and bridges damaged by floods and high water.
Donley said funds have finally been approved to repair the low-water crossing at Haskins Ford, which was underwater and non-crossable most of the spring. Adding to the high-water problem, a big hole opened up in the roadway slab at the ford over the Little North Fork River, an unseen hazard for those attempting to drive over the submerged crossing. After fenceposts marking the hole were stolen by vandals, the county had large concrete blocks hauled in to keep motorists from driving into the hole.
