Kittitas County working on Flood Mitigation Task Force

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- Kittitas County commissioners are giving the go ahead for public works to create a Flood Mitigation Task Force.

Last year's winter floods devastated parts of Kittitas County. The goal is to prevent that kind of wide-spread damage from happening again. Public works director, Kirk Holmes, is organizing a plan involving local, state and federal government agencies. 

The commissioners are avoiding plans that may increase taxes.
