Buchanan Levee Repairs

Missouri governor Nixon is set to be in Buchanan county this morning.

He's announcing more than 3 million dollars for levee repairs. The governor will make the announcement at the Rushville, Sugar Lake levee, that's about 13 miles south of St. Joseph. Last spring and summer's historic flooding along the Missouri River weakened and washed out levees from north of the Iowa border down to the Parkville/Kansas City area.
