6-3EARLINGTON, Ky. (6/3/14) — The City of Earlington held a special presentation in the council chambers accepting the Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services Safety Grant Tuesday, June 3.

Mayor Mike Seiber accepted the $6,000 grant on the behalf of the city of Earlington that will be used for safety equipment supplies, safety training and rubber mulch for Price Park playground.

“We use every opportunity to make our city safer,” said Seiber.

Seiber said that, in these uncertain times, grants such as this one are a practical way to make the budget go further, as well as provide necessary products and training that will enhance public safety.

KLCIS helps members increase public safety with a number of proactive programs and services.

KLCIS has awarded in excess of $3.6 million since the Safety Grant Program started in 1999. In addition to the City of Earlington, 136 other KLCIS members received safety grants.

A total of $418,000 was awarded in this year’s program. The awarded funds will go toward training, slip resistant shoes, sidewalk repairs, confined space equipment, law enforcement accreditation fees, and other equipment to improve public and employee safety, as well as the purchase of classes through the KLCIS Online University.

“Our philosophy is to prevent injuries and claims from happening,” said Jon Steiner executive director/CEO. “We want to partner with our members, and this safety grant promotes good risk management. There is no better way to invest our member’s money.”

KLCIS provides safety grants to its members annually.

As Kentucky’s largest municipal insurance program, KLCIS provides a full range of affordable liability, property, workers’ compensation and other products to municipalities.

In addition, the Kentucky League of Cities offers employee benefits programs, financial services, training and education, policy and development, legislative advocacy, information technology and legal services.
