ONTONAGON COUNTY RECEIVES GRANT FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLE
LANSING, March 13, 2007 USDA Rural Development Director for Michigan Gene DeRossett today presented a ceremonial grant check for $18,000 Ontonagon County to help purchase a police vehicle.
This is another example of how USDA Rural Development is working for Upper Peninsula residents, said DeRossett. We are giving police the tools they need to better protect and serve the people of Ontonagon County.
The event is part of a series of ceremonies commemorating more than $1.6 million in grants and loans for communities across the Upper Peninsula.
