Town accepts four grants

LYNDEBOROUGH- The town has received $11,615 in four grants, and voted on Monday to accept and spend the funds. A public hearing was held on the expenditures, but no one attended.

One of the grants is for $1,436 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, for 2003 storm damage. The money will be used by the Highway Department for salt and gravel.

The town also got a $3,078 federal grant for meters to detect the presence of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, and a $4,505 grant for the purchase of an all-terrain vehicle for the Police Department.

The Lyndeborough Police Association added $2,596 to the latter grant to provide and equip a second ATV, saying officers should not answer emergency calls alone.
