Frankfort, KY – Tompkinsville and Monroe County are on the receiving end of state grants. Governor Fletcher and the Office for Local Development have announced a grant of nearly $17,000 from the Land and Water Conservation Fund for the city.
The Monroe County sheriff's department is getting a nearly $2,000 body armor grant and Land and Water Conservation funds will be used for renovations to Tompkinsville city park.
