SLOCOMB, Ala. (WDHN) — Slocomb has received more than $300,000 dollars under the American Rescue Plan Act.
There are certain guidelines as to what towns can spend the money on — but it may be used to make up costs incurred due to the pandemic.
Mayor Hinson says they are researching to find out if they could use the funds toward first responders and water and sewer projects.
Hinson says the plan is to use that money that will benefit Slocomb citizens the best.
“Having great first responders is something you can’t place value on, it’s hard to place value on human life we’ve got great several areas of public safety, our police, fire, rescue they are wonderful people who do a great job,” Mayor Hinson said.
Mayor Rob Hinson says he’s grateful to be allocated this amount of money for the town of Slocomb.
