Commissioners to Exclude City in Grant Application

Published on April 15, 2014 by Larry Crippen

Monday at Commissioners’ Court, Commissioners voted not to include the City of Huntsville in their application for a grant that might allow them funds for radios for area volunteer fire departments. The overall grant of Texas Wildfire Disaster Recovery Funds is for $700,000.

Commissioners are seeking the funds for new radios to remedy issues encountered when firefighters tried to communicate during the wildfires of the 2011 drought.

Judge Pierce and the Commisioners felt that combining the City’s application with theirs might hamper their chance of receiving the funds, although they hoped the City could get the equipment they needed.
