DENTON TOWNSHIP RECEIVES $1.125 MILLION FOR NEW AMBULANCE BUILDING
EAST LANSING, Aug. 24, 2007 USDA Rural Development Director for Michigan Gene DeRossett today presented a $1,125,000 ceremonial loan check to Denton Township for a new ambulance building.
A core function of government is to provide emergency services, said DeRossett. USDA is proud to help Denton Township improve public safety.
The new facility is a 15,000 square foot building that houses administrative offices, temporary sleeping quarters for on-call personnel, a training center and the ambulance garage. It replaces the current 2,600 square foot structure which suffers from roof and window leaks, poor insulation and overcrowding.
USDA Rural Development's mission is to deliver programs in a way that will support increasing economic opportunity and improve the quality of life of rural residents. As a venture capital entity, Rural Development provides equity, liquidity, and technical assistance to finance and foster growth in homeownership, business development, and critical community and technology infrastructure.
