Greater Gardner MA Communities to Receive Municipal Road Safety Grant Awards

State Senator Anne Gobi announced on 9-15-22 that just over $300,000 is being awarded to Police Departments across the Worcester and Hampshire District who completed a highly competitive application process which included plans to improve traffic safety training, upgrade equipment and increase enforcement efforts.

The Senator stated, “The data shows that drivers continue operating at high rates of speed, distracted and impair driving puts lives needlessly at risk. ….I look forward to my towns and cities being able to take action to keep our communities safe.”

Area communities receiving funding include Barre, Gardner, Oakham, Princeton, Rutland, and Westminster.
