Montgomery Commission Accepts Grants
Wednesday, 29 April 2009

April 29--  Two grants are on the way to Montgomery County to help pay for transit service and a new ambulance.

At a called meeting Wednesday, Montgomery Commissioners voted to accept $74,800 in federal economic stimulus money to buy a new county transit service van and office equipment for the transit office.

The commission also is accepting $71,428 in state money to help pay for a new ambulance.  The county share of the cost could be as high nearly $50,000.  Commissioners are also reviewing the county's ambulance contract with Toombs County which is up for renewal the end of June.

In other actions, the commission voted to buy two new cars for the sheriff's department. The commission initially turned down a beer and wine application from Billy Gay in the southern part of the county, but later reconsidered and granted the license.
