Columbus prepares 2 grant applications
COLUMBUS, Mississippi — The city of Columbus is applying for grants for funding for improved crime lab equipment and police patrol speeding enforcement, as well as upgrades to Columbus-Lowndes County Airport.
The Commercial Dispatch reports that federal programs director Travis Jones is applying for a justice assistance grant that would reimburse the city up to $12,107 to purchase equipment for the Columbus Police Department’s forensic lab and its patrolmen.
An airport improvement grant would be funded by the Federal Aviation Administration. The Mississippi Department of Transportation would provide some funding as would the city and Lowndes County.
Jones said those grant funds would be used for several deficiencies at the city-and-county-owned airport, the first of which being the relocation of its new wind cone.
