County Commissioners declare drought emergency

The Baker County Board of Commissioners ratified a declaration of a drought emergency in the county during their meeting this morning.

The local drought disaster declaration is the first step in potentially obtaining state and federal disaster aid.

Last year county commissioners declared a drought emergency much earlier — on June 5.

The county will forward its declaration to Gov. John Kitzhaber, who will decide whether to add Baker County to the list of Oregon counties under a state disaster declaration.

Baker County commissioners also approved drought declarations in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
