Emergency Management Coordinator, Sara Nielsen informed the Board that the DOT has been through all the cities in the county. In the smaller towns, 90
to 95 percent of the brush has been picked up from the curb. All cities have a debris pile and two have been burned. Nielsen is compiling a spreadsheet
for the DOT that will list the county’s measurements of the debris piles.
Nielsen is fielding calls from rural residents with questions concerning assistance with cleaning up storm debris. Supervisors suggested taking
address of specific calls from the elderly and disabled. They also suggested Nielsen apply for the prisoners from Rockwell City, to see if they can be
retained beyond the March 22nd cutoff date. The Board hopes civic, church, and youth groups can be organized to help those in the rural area who are in
need of assistance.

Nielsen also reported the pictometry provided by Homeland Security has arrived.
