You’ve probably read that water from the Missouri River is being brought into Glenwood for those that want to dip their tires.
There was article published in the Glenwood paper this week:
Roads and farmland west of Interstate 29 are inundated with floodwater and closed to traffic. Bicyclists who enter the evacuated area and attempt to go to the Missouri River are not only putting themselves at physical risk, but may find themselves subject to arrest or the following fines:
* $750 for entering an evacuated area of Mills County;
* $500 for being on a federal levee;
* $40,000 for entering the Missouri River for recreational purposes without permission of the U.S. Coast Guard.
“If we catch them being in the evacuated area, they’re going to be getting a $750 citation for the first offense,” Mills County Attorney Eric Hansen said. “It’s $1,000 for repeat offenders.”
