$700,000 is authorized for the Jackson area. The Jackson Town council voted to authorize the additional emergency funds for the Budge Drive project... to stabalize the hillside. Town officials say people whose homes are not at high risk will be allowed back to their residences tonight. Effective at 7 tonight, the high risk areas will become a "hard closure" area and access will only be granted to emergency personnel. Officials first noticed a large crack in the hillside April 4th. They say the ground continues to move about an inch per day.
