MCLEAN COUNTY, Ill. (WMBD) — The McLean County Board has called a special meeting for this upcoming Tuesday, July 6.
County officials are hoping to buy more time to assess damages caused by last Friday and Saturday’s storms and floods.
Board members are being asked to vote on an extension to the disaster declaration that Chairman John McIntyre issued on Wednesday.
