The Orange County Disaster Declaration has been extended by Commissioner’s Court until September 30, 2020. At that time they will consider another extension. Also, Commissioners have approved to begin the debris mission in Orange County. Emergency Management is setting up the debris mission and as we get details of when it will begin there will be more press releases with more details at that time.
