NW Mo. levee districts get grants

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Six levee, drainage and road districts in northwest Missouri will receive a total of about $1.2 million in community development block grants to help repair damage from flooding along the Missouri River

Gov. Jay Nixon’s office said in a release that the six districts are located in Atchison and Holt counties.

Levee districts applied for the grants to cover either the 20 percent local cost share required under the Army Corps of Engineers’ maintenance program, or for the entire cost if the levee district is not part of the Corps’ system.

Northwest Missouri suffered extensive spring and summer flooding along the river after releases from upstream reservoirs.
