The Provincial Treasury Board has approved funding for those affected by the overland flooding caused by an ice jam in Rosedale last March.
The Mail reported this week the event was declared a natural disaster and it was approved for the provincial Disaster Relief Program. However, it was pending approval of the Treasury Board to provide funding.
Director of Protective Services for the Town of Drumheller, Greg Peters, told the Mail on Wednesday morning, November 29, he received confirmation.
“We are very pleased the Treasury Board has approved this application,” said Peters. “We encourage residents affected by the ice jam to contact us regarding their disaster relief funding.”
Staff from the town will be working with the province and affected residents to submit applications to the program.
