WHEREAS, Potter County does not have the financial resources to respond to this disaster; and
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Potter County is aware of the sparse pastures and lack of forage crops for feeding livestock is necessitating the reduction/disposal of livestock herds; and

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Board of County Commissioners of Potter County, South Dakota, declare a natural disaster drought emergency, and it is
FURTHER RESOLVED, we the Board of Commissioners of Potter County respectfully petition the Governor of the State of South Dakota and the President of the United States to provide with all dispatch and remedy any state and/or federal assistance available for this type of emergency.
