Citing "a significant amount of public property damage" caused by rain and flooding June 28-29, Goodhue County Office of Emergency Management has requested an emergency declaration.

Goodhue County Board will consider declaring a state of emergency at an emergency board meeting scheduled for 8 a.m. July 10 in the Public Works conference room, 2140 Pioneer Road, Red Wing.

The order would be a first step in making the county eligible for state and federal disaster relief funding.
