Officials in Floyd, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo and Worth counties have joined forces to form the North Iowa Long Term Disaster Recovery Commission.
Floyd County Supervisor Linda Tjaden says the commission’s goal is to meet unmet needs for those impacted by a disaster event.
In addition to helping those in need, Tjaden says they’re also looking for people to get involved with providing that assistance.
To spread the word about the Disaster Recovery Commission, there will be an open house from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday in the EOC/Training Room of the Floyd County Law Enforcement Center in Charles City.
Additional open houses are also scheduled for January 12th in Mitchell County and February 16th in Worth County.
