The Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) presented a 2022 Safety Grant to the City of Danville for $1,322. KLC members receive the money to help pay for various programs and services that reduce liability and make the community safer. KLC has awarded more than $5.5 million in liability and safety grants since 1999.

Representatives for the city thanked KLC and stressed the positive impact they have on the community. The City of Danville will use the money to purchase personal protective equipment and work zone safety equipment. “The Danville Fire Department is constantly looking for ways to provide better equipment for their hazardous jobs,” Danville Mayor and KLC Board of Directors member Mike Perros said. “The more they can receive in grants, the less the city and taxpayers have to pay, and we can reallocate those funds to other needed areas.”

“We are grateful for the opportunity to help our members pay for important safety initiatives,” said KLC Executive Director/CEO J.D. Chaney. “I am certain Mayor Perros and Danville city officials will put this money to good use and help protect their employees.”

KLC Insurance Services is Kentucky’s largest municipal insurance provider. The agency helps members increase public safety with proactive programs and services. KLC insurance also provides a full range of affordable liability, property, workers’ compensation, and other municipal insurance products.

In addition to insurance, the Kentucky League of Cities offers employee benefits programs, legislative advocacy, financial and municipal law services, training, community development, and other resources that serve cities.
