FRANKFORT, Ky. (December 11, 2018) – The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced an Area Development Fund (ADF) grant of $10,500 to Knox County Fiscal Court.

The grant will allow the county to be reimbursed for the purchase of two new 2018 Chevy 1500 Double Cab 4x4 pick-up trucks for Knox County Solid Waste and Animal Control.

“It’s important for the county to have a reliable vehicle that can be used to effectively and efficiently enforce solid waste and animal control ordinances on county roads,” DLG Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo said. “Ultimately, this purchase will help make Knox County a safer and more pleasant place for residents.”

“Purchases like this add up over time and can put a strain on public resources,” Sen. Robert Stivers said. “I’m pleased that county officials sought this grant funding to be reimbursed for this new vehicle and that DLG could assist them in that pursuit.”

The ADF Grant program was established by the 1976 Kentucky General Assembly to fund projects that contribute to community or industrial development. The funds are administered by DLG, an arm of the Office of the Governor dedicated to supporting local officials and communities. For more information, visit
