GIBBON — The League Association of Risk Management recently awarded the city of Gibbon a $500 disaster relief check.

According to a LARM press release, the funds will help pay for storm sewer cleaning needed after the March 12-14 epic storm that hit much of Nebraska.

The Disaster Relief Funds were approved by the LARM Board of Directors in late March. Twenty-eight LARM members have since received the funds to help pay for storm-related items such as sump pumps, generators and other equipment. LARM is an insurance pool made up of 168 government entities across Nebraska.
