USDA Commemorates Gladwin Police Building Grand Opening
EAST LANSING, Aug. 30, 2012 – U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Rural Development today commemorated the grand opening of Gladwin’s renovated police department building.
“This project is another example of how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has helped to improve public safety,” said State Director for Michigan James J. Turner. “USDA Rural Development has a strong partnership with Gladwin and it is great to see the completion of this project.”
The agency provided a
$142,000 loan and $78,000 grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment

Facilities funding to pay for the project.
