Small towns overwhelmed by out of town visitors turn to county for help

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

On the afternoon of March 26, the Elmore County Commissioners held a meeting to discuss Governor Brad Little's Stay-at-Home order and a conference call they'd had with him after the announcement. While some members of the county were there in person, others joined by teleconference as did staff of the Mountain Home News.

The Commissioners were in agreement that the steps that they had begun implementing on March 20, were in line with the new order, but that more communications and clarifications needed to be put out to the department heads over what essential jobs and services were.

"I thought the Governor did really good," Commissioner Al Hofer said. "We gotta do our best, but got to keep services rolling."
