County judge declares state of emergency

Nelson County Judge-Executive Dean Watts declared a state of emergency Thursday for an undetermined length of time because of severe winter weather conditions. The order requires agencies to “cooperate to the fullest extent” with Nelson County Emergency Management Director Joe Prewitt and “provide such assistance as may be required.” It also allows Watts to waive procedures ordinarily required by law regarding work, contracts, purchases and expenditure of pubic funds.
