Boulder, Larimer and Weld counties will each receive $85,000 from the $500,000 given to the state.

As of Monday, Boulder County reported 87 human West Nile cases, Larimer County reported 110 and Weld County reported 133 cases.

State health officials reported 699 human cases in Colorado, including eight deaths.
