Supervisors approve amendment to Jasper County mitigation plan
The Jasper County Board of Supervisors adopted an amendment to the county-wide mitigation plan for the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. The federal act requires planning efforts if a community requests federal funds for disaster relief.
The county’s community school districts were left out of the original plan, Jasper County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Sparks told the supervisors Tuesday.
The resolution approved by the supervisors includes all county schools within the county’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, with the exception of Lynnville-Sully School District. Sparks said he had tried several times to include Lynnville-Sully in the plan, but could not receive a response from the school district. The exclusion means that the school district may not be eligible for federal funds in the event of a disaster.
