Chelan County's pocket book will take a two-million dollar hit as the damage control continues in the Lake Wenatchee and Plain areas.
Last week's snow storm knocked out power to thousands of homes and many residents are still waiting for service.
Chelan County Public Works Director Mitch Reister says debris clean up has been slow due to the dangerous surroundings. . .
Reister says the slow goings cost the county 200-thousand dollar within the past week.
Reister says the accelerated expenditures will reduce snow removal service countywide. . .
Administrators say the county may recoup a portion of its emergency costs through the state.
At last word, over three thousand homes are without power.
