Butler Co. Disaster Recovery Coalition to be honored

DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Butler County Disaster Recovery Coalition will be given the Rebuild Iowa Award for Service later this month.

Lt. General Ron Dardis, the executive director of the Rebuild Iowa Office, will present the award during the Butler County Board of Supervisors meeting in Allison on Tuesday, July 20th.

Nominees for the award were judged on volunteer hours, community impact, creativity, leadership and project sustainability. All applications were judged by an independent selection committee made up of public dignitaries and private citizens involved with the state's 2008 disaster recovery effort.

Butler County's coalition is one of nine recipients of the award.

Although the coalition's work on the 2008 disasters is winding down, members will continue to meet on a regular basis so they are ready for the next disaster.
