The Ravalli County Board OF County Commissioners are meeting on Friday at 9 a.m. to discuss declaring an emergency for the county.
"The purpose of this meeting is not to discuss or propose mandatory closures of Ravalli County Businesses," said Chairman Chris Hoffman, "Rather we are discussing costs associated with managing this emergency."
Declaring a state of emergency allows the county to receive reimbursements for costs and additional resources and benefits for the county's emergency services.
To avoid a large meeting the commissioners are recommending that comments be sent to them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
