Giles County Commissioners voted to support a letter of commitment as part of a grant application for building a storm shelter at the Giles County Agri Park.
A $1.2 million grant is sought for the project, and the letter of credit for $300,000 would cover the county’s matching share.
The grant will be sought through the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Giles County Ofﬁce of Emergency Management.
Money would come from a hazard mitigation program, offered through FEMA.
The proposed concrete shelter would be built to withstand an EF4 tornado, and the approximately 80-by120-square-foot building would replace another building at the park.
