Kossuth County officials are asking county residents to review and comment on the proposed Kossuth County Multi Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan is a collection of strategies in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. According to Kossuth County Emergency Manager David Penton, the plan is revised or updated for each contingency.
Those that could potentially effected by a disaster such as this or others will have the chance to help refine, if necessary, strategies to reduce damage or loss of life.
Those who want to view a hard copy of the plan can go to the Kossuth County Auditors Office in Algona or visit the Bancroft City Hall. It can be viewed online at http://www.co.kossuth.ia.us/emergency-management.php. .
