With the aid of a USDA grant, the City of Washburn has a brand new police vehicle for their department. Representatives from the USDA Rural Development and Senator Claire McCaskill’s office were present on Tuesday morning, March 13, to present the city with a plaque in commemoration of the partnership.
Washburn mayor John Tiedeman said, “We have a lot of elderly people in our community, and the median income doesn’t get us a lot of funds to make a purchase like this.”
