Voters in Hamilton County will decide next month if they want to keep participating in a program aimed at reducing hail and enhancing rainfall in western Kansas.

It has been in the Western Kansas Weather Modification Program for 23 years.

The cloud-seeding program operates from April to September.

This year, the program was funded by 10 participating counties, which paid 5.2 cents per acre for cropland and 2.2 cents per acre for rangeland.

The decision to fund the program is usually made annually by participating counties' commissioners.

This is the first time David Brenn, director of GMD No. 1, recalls a general election vote on whether to participate.
