Chase City was awarded a Byrne Justice Assistance grant of $49,715 for equipment and technology thanks to Sgt. Will Stembridge with the Chase City Police Department.

Assistant Mayor Lisa Gillispie made the announcement during a brief meeting of Town Council Monday night.

In other business, Council adopted a program design for the town’s Endly Street Community Improvement Project, Phase I. The project will benefit 34 low and moderate income individuals living in 10 households by rehabilitating four properties and substantially reconstructing 6 others.
