Henderson voting to apply for 911 Grant

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

The Henderson City Commission will consider applying for a $63,000 grant from the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security at Tuesday's city commission meeting.

The money would be used to help buy new work stations for the dispatch center.

City officials say this is part of a multi-year plan to upgrade their 911 center. They say a lot of the equipment they're using is out of date.

"We realize the price tag is going to be so huge that we want to do everything we can to lower the financial burden on the citizens of Henderson," says Henderson police Major David Piller.

The city should hear whether or not they get the grant sometime in the Fall.
