DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- The Dane County Board on Thursday is expected to vote to extend the declaration of emergency in Dane County through Dec. 31.
The declaration was originally imposed March 16 and later extended through Oct. 12.
The local state of emergency only ensures the full resources of the county government continue to be available to meet community needs through the ongoing pandemic.
It also positions the county to be eligible for federal and state assistance as the emergency continues.
The Dane County Board meeting will be held virtually on Thursday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m.
