DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — Dodge City Community College Foundation has gotten the green light from a federal agency to develop a community safe room project.
The Dodge City Globe reports (http://bit.ly/13tdIgh ) the foundation received a letter this week from the Kansas Division of Emergency Management saying the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved the development of the detailed design for a community safe room project submitted by the community college.
Roger Proffitt, DCCC Foundation Director, says the foundation submitted a grant application with FEMA for $491,000 to help fund the project, which will include a community activities center and tornado shelter.
