The Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) presented a 2022 Safety Grant to the City of Stanford for $3,000.

KLC members receive the money to help fund various programs and services that reduce liability and make the community safer. KLC has awarded more than $5.5 million in liability and safety grants since 1999.

Representatives for the city thanked KLC for the funds and stressed the grant’s positive impact on their community. The City of Stanford will use the money to purchase work zone safety equipment, including signs and cones, puncture-resistant gloves, and other personal protective equipment.

“The City of Stanford is thankful that the Kentucky League of Cities makes these grants available. It makes for a safer work environment for our employees, and it makes it safer for our citizens by allowing us to access these grants,” Stanford Mayor Dalton Miller said.

“We are grateful that we have the opportunity to help our members fund important safety initiatives,” remarked KLC Executive Director/CEO J.D. Chaney. “The safety equipment the City of Stanford plans to purchase with these funds is vital to the health and safety of the people who work for the city and serve the community.”

KLC Insurance Services is Kentucky’s largest municipal insurance program. The agency helps members increase public safety with proactive programs and services. KLC insurance also provides a full range of affordable liability, property, workers’ compensation, and other municipal insurance products.

In addition to insurance, the Kentucky League of Cities offers employee benefits programs, legislative advocacy, financial and municipal law services, training, community development, and other resources that serve cities.
