VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. — The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office says it has received more than $127,000 in CARES Act funding.
It will be used to purchase equipment, including two trailers, traffic cones, folding tables, chairs, generator and an EZ-up tent, according to a news release.
Because of the federal funding, no taxpayer dollars were used to purchase the equipment.
The equipment will be used for COVID-19 mobile drive-up testing sites, future mobile vaccinations and other programs of a similar nature.
The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office was also able to purchase updated in-car computers, as well as laptops for the Emergency Operation Center and the administration staff.
Those computers will be able to be used for remote work and can be sanitized.
