Despite an administrative snafu, Lancaster County Council approved matching a federal grant for the
Indian Land Volunteer Fire Department during its meeting late last month.
Council voted 6-0 at its Jan. 28 meeting to approve a $2,000 local match to fund a new breathing air compressor for the fire department. Councilman Steve Harper was absent from the vote on a previously scheduled trip.
The amount is 5 percent of the total grant, with $38,000 funded by the federal government.
