Pennington County commissioners are seeking reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for nearly $365,000 in costs stemming from an early October blizzard, after discussion about whether the county really needs it.
The commission voted 4-1 at a special meeting Thursday to approve the request.
Commissioner Don Holloway is opposed to seeking federal reimbursement funds for the storm's costs. He says the county had already budgeted for many of the services provided during the blizzard, which dumped as much as 4 feet of snow on western South Dakota.
Pennington County estimates it spent about $514,500 on storm-related expenses.
