County to request funds for tornado cleanup
MONROE - A State of Emergency proclamation in Green County will allow county officials to request funds from federal entities to help handle the cost of damages caused by tornadoes that struck June 16 and June 17. Green County Emergency Management Director Tanna McKeon said the proclamation, approved unanimously Tuesday by the Green County Board, allows her to begin the process of looking for cleanup funds, and that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is the most likely to provide those funds. McKeon said that overall, the storm caused about $800,000 in damages around the county, the most significant occurring around Brodhead and York Township.
