Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) announced today that the City of Glennville will receive a loan of $48,600 and a grant of $25,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Community Facility Loan and Grant Program. The City of Glennville will use these funds to purchase two new patrol vehicles for the Police Department.
"This project will help the men and women who protect us," said Barrow. "Going through tough economic times doesn't mean we should cut back on public safety. The heroic officers of our local police departments have been getting by with less and less, and I'm glad to see them get the kind of help they can use."
The Agriculture Department's Community Facilities Loans and Grants Program is part of a larger, coordinated effort to improve health care, public safety and public services in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population.
