City, county to apply for fire truck grants

Both the City of Mount Vernon Council and Franklin County Commissioners Court approved an agreement with the Ark-Tex Council of Governments office to write separate grants of up to $500,000 for a Community Development Block Grant for fire trucks.

The grants are specifically for fire and ambulance vehicles, said Josh Daily, Fire Marshal and Emergency Services Coordinator for Franklin County. See the March 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for the rest of this story.
