 The Charles Mix County Disaster Mitigation Planning Team has just completed updating the County’s disaster mitigation plan.  The plan includes a profile and risk assessment of the various natural hazards that affect the county, such as blizzards, tornadoes, flooding, and droughts, and presents a disaster mitigation strategy that may lessen the impacts of the hazards.

The plan is available for public review and comment on the Charles Mix County website (http://charlesmix.sdcounties.org), the Platte website (http://www.plattesd.org), and the Wagner website (http://www.cityofwagner.org).  The plan will be submitted to the South Dakota Office of Emergency Management around November 1st.

Comments and suggestions regarding the plan can be sent to Charles Mix County Emergency Management Director Mike Kotab at “[email protected]” or by calling (605) 491-3134.  Comments also can be sent to John Clem at “[email protected]” or by calling (800) 952-3562.  Any comments received prior to November 1st will be included in the plan.
