Williams Council allows police department to apply for Highway Safety grants

WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Williams City Council unanimously approved a resolution allowing Police Chief Herman Nixon to apply for grants from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) at the Feb. 14 regular meeting.

With the resolution approved, Nixon can seek grant money as part of Arizona's 2014 Highway Safety Plan.

Nixon called the resolution a housekeeping item.

"When we get the grant money this says that we will spend the money on what the grant was for, basically," Nixon said.

Under the resolution, Nixon plans to apply for $40,000 to buy a patrol car if a different grant does not go through.

The police department has used grant money to pay for almost half of its patrol cars, Nixon said.

"That really helps with the budget the way it is," Nixon said.

The council also unanimously approved the appointment of Mike Dulay for a four-year term as a commissioner on the Parks and Recreation Commission. Dulay also serves as Chairman for the Friends of the Aquatic Center.

Dulay joins Carol Glassburn, Theresa Johnson, Patty Williams, Bobby Patricca and Tad Wygal in serving on the commission.

The commission meets the first Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the council chambers.
