    CFD wins state grant

    The Carrollton Fire Department received a $6,400 matching grant for a new thermal imaging camera from the Kentucky Fire Commission. It is a 50/50 matching grant, meaning $3,200 will come from the state and $3,200 from the city budget.
    Fire Chief Greg Beck said council has not set aside this amount for the grant. He asked that the city pull from the $40,000 it had earmarked for the fire truck grant from the carryover funds because he did not think the city would receive the truck grant this year.
