In a report given at the May 5 regular meeting of the Henry County Board of Commissioners, county manager Cheri Hobson-Matthews covered a list of county agencies which should receive state and federal funds to compensate for issues brought about by the COVID-19 shutdown.
The amounts range from a few thousand to several hundred thousand dollars. County departments slate to receive money from grants or reimbursements include the county’s airport, community development department, District Attorney’s office, elections office, libraries, E-911, police, senior services and transit department.
