The Department of Health was awarding approximately $114,000 in grants funded by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency for the purchase of new, diesel-powered vehicles and equipment.

Superintendent Dr. Cheri Poitra said, “In reviewing the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act of the Energy Policy Act of 2010, I felt McClusky was a prime candidate to meet this grants expectations.
