Dr. Allegri says they worked closely with the city of Marshall to help get this grant passed through. It’s $10,000 for an infrared camera. Allegri says this will help the fire department find hot spots and those that may be trapped in smoke filled burning homes.
Council also finalized a motel annexation and heard updates on an upcoming tractor pull and events taking place at the city pool.
