Wayne County Emergency Management has received a $45,000 grant, which

will be used to construct a sanitary lift station at the new EMS facility.

EMS building. The grant funding, which was announced last week by Governor

Funding for this project was not provided in the original funding

package and must be completed before the building can open. The new EMS

building is located closer to the Wayne County Hospital, nursing home

time and better access routes.

"Finishing the Emergency Management Facility is a high priority for our

citizens," said Senate President David Williams. "The completion of this

project will provide an enhanced level of public safety for our residents."
