Giving an update to the Stevens County Board of Commissioners at their Tuesday meeting, County Emergency Management Director Dona Greiner said they have become concerned with some of the rising food costs in the area.
“We heard in our leadership call about how the cost of meat is effecting our day care providers, which makes it difficult for them to purchase the required foods to feed the day care children,” said Greiner. “So we’ve sent that concern up to the State Emergency Operation Center.”
Greiner also said she has been working with alternate care facilities and discussing drive through testing plans. The county may be eligible for an emergency grant of close to $9,000, instead of a previously discussed $5,000 option.
