WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (5/22/13) - A $50,000 grant will give the city of Slaughters the ability to make improvements in a number of areas, around town.
At its most recent city commission meeting commissioners voted to give City Clerk Teri Link the authority to order new equipment for the baseball field and playground.
This will be very important to Slaughters children as the Webster County School Board has been making plans to remove their playground equipment from the site of the now closed Slaughters Elementary School.
The rest of the grant money will be used to buy $15,000 worth of equipment for the fire department and $10,000 to upgrade equipment in the city offices.
The commission also voted at the most recent meeting to make repairs to the bridge on Second Cross Street and to allow the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to being spraying for mosquitoes.
Mayor Jeff Coomes reported that Fifth Third Securities is still in the process of investigating securities that are permissible for the cemetery perpetual fund. He will be talking to them before the end of the month.
