Lucas Co. Commissioners vote to declare state of emergency

Officials hope to recoup relief funds over water crisis

The Lucas County Commissioners unanimously voted today to seek a state of emergency declaration for the county so they can recoup relief funds for the water crisis.

The declaration, which was approved 3-0, is retroactive to the start of the water advisory at 2 a.m. Saturday. The advisory was lifted early today.

This is the first step in seeking federal funds for money spent on wages and other expenses related to the water advisory. It is not a guarantee of financial assistance.
