At last week’s Rotary Club meeting, Rotarian Steve Jones, Director, Macon County “E-911”, gave an overview of the Disaster Stimulus Grant that Macon County has received. The grant will pay for, among other things, 14 additional emergency warning sirens, a staging facility, three new emergency services communication towers, a rescue truck for West Macon County and a centralized 3,000 gallon fire tanker truck to be used throughout the county.
The Rotary club is a service organization devoted to various projects supporting the community-at-large, including Makin’ Macon Fit, the Macon County 3rd Graders Dictionary Initiative, Boy Scouts, the Macon County High School Interact Club and the Junior High Interact Club, as well as scholarships.
