JAMESTOWN – One of the biggest goals that Jamestown City Council President Tony Dolce has for the 2022 year is to disperse the City’s American Rescue Plan funds.

The Council began that journey Monday night, approving multiple resolutions to fund various projects for the city. One of the resolutions will allow for the Jamestown Fire Department to allocate $10,000 towards a Knox Box system.

Fire Chief Matthew Coon demonstrated what the system does during the meeting. He says that the system will be beneficial to both business and commercial owners as well as the fire department in storing extra sets of keys to buildings.

Mayor Eddie Sundquist previously said that the fire department would be able to enter a commercial building easier in the event of a fire or other emergency.

The Council is expected to continue discussing and voting on other projects as part of the ARPA spending plan from Sundquist throughout the next several months, starting with a work session on Jan. 24.
