This vote is the second extension since the city's initial declaration March 19. The city of Magnolia declared a local disaster March 19 in effect for seven days, according to a proclamation listed on the city's website and signed by Mayor Todd Kana, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. Council members then extended the declaration to April 15 during a special March 26 teleconference meeting.
"[This declaration allows the city] to coincide with the county and state declarations for any possible funding in the future," Kana said during the April 14 meeting.
Earlier in April, Montgomery County officials voted to extend the county's local disaster declaration through May 11 instead of April 11.
