Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $100,000)
The grant application is for the updating of the Village's vehicle fleet. The Village will replace older model patrol vehicles throughout their rural department. Current pricing for two patrol vehicles is $115,000.00. The vehicles are needed to better serve the citizens of Blanchester, Clinton County and neighboring Villages and Townships as we do respond as mutual aid. Current vehicles are in poor condition and unreliable at best. The Village of Blanchester needs these cruisers to respond to 911 calls of assistance, complaints and enforcement purposes.
