Shelby County will use $1,183,967 for PPE, food assistance and payroll for the sheriff’s department.
“As Judge/Executive of Shelby County, I would like to state what an extraordinary relief it will be to receive the CARES funding,” said Shelby County Judge/Executive Dan Ison. “The allocation of these funds have substantially assisted us with the ability to maintain our financial stability due to the deficiency and increased expenses needed in order to protect our employees and the citizens of Shelby County. It has provided us the ability to obtain crucial supplies and equipment, provide protection to our first responders but also to our citizens that we continue to serve during these uncertain and difficult times. In addition, the funds have afforded us the opportunity to obtain additional resources in order to implement additional services to the public in forms such as food bank assistance while the schools are closed. We are grateful for the assistance, guidance, support, and relief that these funds offer our county.”
Shelbyville will use $1,168,192 for payroll expenses.
“On behalf of the City of Shelbyville, I would like to thank the Department for Local Government for all their support in helping us to receive our CARES allotment,” said Shelbyville Mayor David Eaton. “The staff was professional and extremely easy to work with as they guided us through the process. The time frame from application to receipt of the funds was incredibly quick due to the DLG’s efforts. These funds will prove to be most helpful in replacing lost city revenues due to COVID-19.”
We thank you Judge Ison and Mayor Eaton for your leadership
