(JACKSON, WY) – The city of Jackson is getting $1 million in assistance from the state of Wyoming to help cover damage caused by a landslide in April.

The town had asked for more than $6 million to cover the costs needed to stabilize the hillside. State officials say the only things covered by emergency funding are the exposed water and sewer lines.

Mayor Mark Barron says he’ll still ask the state for more assistance.
