Subject to the approval of the Board of County Commissioners, there is created the office of County Flood Commissioner in each county through which runs any river or stream which is subject to flood conditions destructive to property or dangerous to human life. County Flood Commissioners shall be appointed by the governor to serve for a term of two years, or until their successors are appointed and qualify, and they shall each receive a salary of one dollar ($1.00) a year payable from the county flood fund.

County Flood Commissioners may inspect rivers and streams in their respective counties where flood waters are liable to cause damage to property or life and in their discretion cause to be constructed and maintained dikes, embankments, dams, ditches or other structures or excavations necessary to control such flood water and protect life and property in their counties against loss and damage.

Emergency Procurement: Local Disaster Declaration

To Whom It May Concern:

Based on the recent developments from the flooding throughout the County of Sierra, I am issuing an emergency procurement, as a Local Disaster Declaration for the amount of $50,000.00, divided between 5 local contractors. It is an estimated cost for construction flood repairs through Sandy Jones, Flood Commissioner.

The County Commissioners met to approve Resolution No. 108-011, ON SEPTEMBER 20, 2022 @ 10:00 AM MOUNTAIN TIME. DECLARING A DISASTER IN THE COUTY OF SIERRA RELATED TO FLOODING CAUSED BY SUBSTANTIAL RAIN FALL. And, by Executive Order 2022-143 from State of New Mexico Governor Lujan Grisham, on October 3, 2022, Authorizing Emergency Funds.

Based on the imperative conditions of current events we may require further action as conditions change or develop, and as pertains to Sierra County staff and needs, this declaration may be subject to changes.
