Heineman in Chadron Thursday

Governor Dave Heineman will be in Chadron Thursday to speak to the local Rotary club and also get an update on the damage in Chadron from last month's blizzard.

The community infrastructure, including electrical poles and lines, was hard hit and there was a lot of property damage involving fallen trees and branches. Heineman says he looks forward to finding out how the city is recovering. The governor also indicated he would talk to city staff and local emergency personnel about how well they are documenting the damage so the city can obtain state or federal assistance.

Heineman also told KNEB News the community should be very proud of the way Chadron State College students, volunteers and residents stepped up in helping their neighbors .
