Around town…
The Village Office reports that they have recently been awarded a grant from FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) for a new defib. unit for the EMS department. This will be a lifesaving tool for our community. They have also received $2,500 for NOMEX jumpsuits for the fire fighters, and $1,000 from New Mexico Clean and Beautiful to do some landscaping work around Floyd.
