Municipal COVID 19 Relief Funding

The news that up to three-point-three million dollars in federal COVID 19 relief dollars is available for the city of Yankton has focused the efforts of city staff to complete the required paperwork.

City Manager Amy Leon says the money is strictly for reimbursements on COVID 19 pandemic related expenses.

Leon says city staff will be documenting expenses that have already occurred along with projecting others that are expected.

Leon says with uncertainty regarding future revenues the relief funding is welcome news.

Leon says the District 3 Planning and Development Office will be assisting city staff with the COVID 19 relief funding application.
