State of Emergency lifted for Montgomery County


FONDA, N.Y.-- As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, County Executive Matt Ossenfort lifted the State of Emergency for Montgomery County.

The State of Emergency went into effect following Friday’s storm, which brought severe weather to the area.

“We are working diligently to figure out where repairs are needed and make them as swiftly as possible. While this was an unfortunate incident, our response team reacted exactly how they should to minimize damage and the potential for any danger to residents,” said Ossenfort.

The county is still gathering repair damage estimates and encourages any municipality to provide written estimates, photos, and documents to the office of Emergency Management.

“This is another unfortunate incident for the residents of our County,” said Emergency Management Director Jeffery T. Smith.

Ossenfort and Smith urge residents to use caution when traveling even through the State of Emergency had been rescinded.
