Wind Energy Economic Development grant program recently awarded Kempton with a grant. We are very proud of this because there were over 2 million in applications with only about $600,000 available. We were awarded with a $38,200 grant with part going to purchase a new patrol car (which is on order) and the remainder going to purchase a badly needed town truck. (searching)
Our town is indeed moving forward.
