Gifford residents plan to hold a community meeting to discuss rebuilding efforts.

The Nov. 17 storms leveled about 70 Gifford homes, a town which has about 970 residents. Another 40 or so homes suffered some sort of damage.

Officials hope to learn what the community wants in the rebuilding process while also discussing what programs may be available to help residents.
