The $35,000 grant would fund threat level 4 rifle-resisting body armor for officers. This armor offers an extra layer of protection than the threat level 3 armor worn by officers daily.
Police Chief Kenny Seymour said the vests must be replenished as they expire, and the governor has always approved the grant when submitted in the past.
Council also approved a resolution to amend an ordinance related to recycling that was adopted in November. The ordinance will now include 95-gallon carts with rates and fees already listed in the ordinance for 8 cubic yard containers.
The rates proposed are a carryover from a previous ordinance and did not change, but they were not included in the November amendment.
