GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) Clean-up continues in parts of the Front Range ravaged by last month's flooding. As a way to lend a hand, Mesa County sent a crew up to Weld County to assist in the recovery efforts.
The crew consisted of four construction trucks and helped with two major road repair projects.
They returned to Grand Junction this Friday afternoon and say they were more than happy to help out.
"It feels good to help somebody else out, because you know if that kind of devastation hits here we're going to need some help also and it's nice to know that other counties are willing to come in and help. We're all trying to accomplish the same thing to keep traffic moving and keep people in their homes," says Keith Hatch, a crew member.
The workers shared stories and pictures of the devastation when they returned on Friday. The total cost to send the workers was close to $17,000. However the bill won't be put on the shoulders of Mesa County.
Instead, Weld County will reimburse the money at a later date through FEMA and other emergency grant funds.
