The Woodward County Commissioners signed a temporary emergency declaration Monday morning at their regular meeting.

The declaration allows for clean up of storm damage, from Saturday's storms. The declaration was presented by Woodward Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer.

The temporary emergency declaration was to cover any clean up done over the weekend.

"For example there was a camper on a house that needed to be removed for safety," said Lehenbauer.

The commissioners then extended the declaration until the next commission meeting on June 20.

Lehenbauer said he has not surveyed the entire county, but damage estimates from the storms are already topping $100,000.

The commissioners also approved:

• Monthly reports of county officers.

• An application for temporary appropriations, in the amount of $3,426,820.09, for the operation of the county general government for the next fiscal year until the budget is finalized.

• A proposal from Putnam & Company PLLC to provide budgeting services for Woodward County. The fee was increase $250 from last year.

Also during the meeting, County Commissioner Ted Craighead was named as the contact person and liaison for the redistricting for the House of Representatives.

The commissioners approved bids from Allied Gypsum and Pinnacle Materials for 6-month gypsum rock for all highway districts.
