The first grant awarded the City $50,650.00 for a Hazardous Moving Violation Project, and the second grant awarded the City $31,500.00 for an Impaired Driving Enforcement/DWI Saturation Project. The grants will provide the City with funding to implement programs intended to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes occurring on Missouri roadways and reduce traffic fatalities and injuries.

Under the first grant agreement, the City will be reimbursed for funds spent on programs that reduce speeding and aggressive driving within the City borders. Funds from the second grant agreement will be spent on programs that reduce impaired driving in the City. Both grant agreements have a term starting October 1, 2021, and ending September 30, 2022.
