    Panola and Rusk counties have received funding from the East Texas Council of Governments to help tornado debris clean-up, the organization announced.

    ETCOG’s Executive Committee recently agreed to give $27,905 in excess funds from the solid waste program to Rusk and Panola to help with clearing, collection and disposal of tornado debris. The funding, to be divided between the two counties, will help reimburse clean-up costs.
