Gordon residents will soon have safer streets with the help of a grant.
State Senator Harri Anne Smith presented Gordon’s Mayor, Charles Dismeke with a $25,000 dollar community development block grant Wednesday morning.
The money will be used to purchase a new police car for the town.
"Like I say, we need the upgrade, our equipment and we just, our chief does a fine job and the citizens here appreciate it," said Mayor Dismeke.
Officials hope to have the new car by September.
