Area cities hopeful for flood mitigation funds


MAYNARD -- Three area communities are named as recipients of state funds for flood mitigation projects as part of an overall, $20 million appropriation signed into law.

Maynard, Montevideo and Granite Falls are among the communities listed as those in the state to be appropriated funds by the legislation approved at the end of the session.

But this many days after the session's end, the communities are still unsure of what funds they will receive.
