BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Gov. John Hickenlooper is taking steps to help cities and counties still recovering from last year’s historic September floods.

Eighteen counties were eligible for aid after the floods, including Boulder and others in the metro area. But some of the local governments have complained getting reimbursed from the federal government takes too long, leaving them with cash flow problems.

The governor is supposed to announce a new process and give a check to Boulder County Wednesday afternoon.
