Thankful for the funding
On behalf of the Kidder Township Board of Supervisors, the Kidder Township Community, and all our emergency services units (the police department, three fire companies and ambulance rescue squad), I want to publicly thank Carbon Commissioners Nothstein, O'Gurek and Getz (now retired) and Gerhard for their efforts.
They were able to procure $907,000 of grant funding to help meet the onerous costs to each Carbon County Municipality for the unfunded federal "Narrow Band Communications" mandate requiring the replacement and/or cost for the mandated upgrade but will cover from 70 to 80 percent of those costs at a time when every expense is a problem and our budgets are strained to their limits.
Thanks for a job well done.
Larry Polansky, chairman
Kidder Township Board of Supervisors
