Some southeastern Colorado counties still struggling because of last month's blizzard will get some financial help from the state.
Governor Ritter is announcing the release of $635,000 worth of state aid to help defray the costs of dealing with the storm.
Commissioners from eight counties requested the help to cover snow-removal costs, along with equipment and associated expenses.
The funds announced Tuesday come from the Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Program.
The state freed up about $2,000,000 previously when former Governor Owens declared two separate States of Emergency late last month.
Baca County will get $100,000;
Bent County will receive $50,000;
Crowley County will receive $50,000;
Huerfano County will get $60,000;
Kiowa County will receive $50,000;
Las Animas County will get $100,000;
Otero County will receive $100,000;
and Prowers County will receive $125,000.
