Federal grants will go toward security

Union Democrat staff

Tuolumne County and Sonora city public safety and health programs will get a funding boost this year thanks to a pair of federal grants.

According to the Tuolumne County Administrator's Office, the county has been allocated a total of $267,238 this year between annual grants from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and federal Emergency Management Grant Program.

The total - which bolsters emergency agencies through equipment, personnel, planning and other uses - exceeds last year's by $28,700, according to county documents.

The county Board of Supervisors was expected to accept the funding today at its regular meeting.
