DEL NORTE — Rio Grande County has been faced with numerous bills from the recent West Fork Fire Complex and it received some help from El Pomar recently.
The Board of County Commissioners have applauded a $25,000 grant, given to both Rio Grande and Mineral counties, that covered immediate needs arising for people who couldn’t qualify for other government assistance.
These were people without children, and the income for recipients was capped at $75,000. Rio Grande County Administrator Suzanne Benton said she has also asked the state to reimburse some $35,000 for such expenses as employee overtime, facilities usage and the like, while the schools are seeking an additional $75,000.
