Rep. Rodney Davis was in Carrollton Monday morning to present Greene County with a check for $191,000 from a USDA grant to help with putting in a new HVAC unit in the courthouse. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Community Facilities Direct Loan and Grant Program through a special disaster set-aside stemming from a 2019 disaster declaration. Counties impacted by that disaster were eligible to apply through the regular Community Facilities program, but could receive higher amounts than the typical $50,000 maximum based on need. Dwight Reynolds, USDA Area Director, said the $191,000 grant received by Greene County is the largest grant amount received in the entire state. In attendance for the presentation are, left to right: Reynolds, Greene County Treasurer Kirby Ballard, Greene County Clerk Debbie Banghart, Greene County Board Member Joyce Clark, Greene County Board Member Earlene Castleberry, Rep. Rodney Davis and Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen. (Carmen Ensinger/Greene Prairie Press)
