Wasco County To Consider Drought Declaration

Wasco County will be considering whether or not to seek a drought declaration from the state.  Commissioners have directed County staff to consult with agricultural partners on whether or not the County should seek the declaration.  County Administrative Officer Tyler Stone says if it’s appropriate a drought declaration can provide assistance to the ag industry in the form of providing state resources and help producers with insurance contracts they have.  Stone said there was not timeline to make a decision on whether to send a letter requesting a drought declaration, but he thought they would be shooting for the next Commission meeting later in the month.  The last time Wasco County sought a drought declaration was in 2003.
