Police and Fire Awarded Grant

The City of Carrollton’s public safety departments were awarded $38,464 by the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance to help combat the spread of the coronavirus.

“This grant enhances our ability to protect the citizens while reducing the risk of virus spread to our citizens and public safety personnel,” said Fire Chief Jimmy Bearden.

The city’s police and fire departments are using the grant money to purchase personal protective equipment.

“We are very thankful for this grant from the Department of Justice and the partnership we have with the Carrollton Fire Department,” said Carrollton Police Chief Joel Richards.

Emergency Supplemental Funding Program dollars can be used to pay for equipment (including law enforcement and medical personal protective equipment), supplies like protective coveralls, gloves, masks, gowns and sanitizer and addressing the medical needs of inmates in state, local, and tribal prisons, jails and detention centers.

Carrollton Coronavirus Precautionary Measures

In support of state and local efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), the City of Carrollton will be taking the following precautionary measures: 

Effective immediately, we are postponing and/or canceling all large public events, meetings, programs and classes for a two-week period, or until further guidance recommends otherwise. This includes, but is not limited to, all city-sponsored events, city-permitted events, tournaments and rentals in city-owned facilities. Cancellations and rescheduled dates of affected events will be announced on their respective social media pages, our carrolltonga.com and department webpages. We will continue to update you on the status of events based on CDC recommendations.

Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, all City facilities will be closed to the public until March 29. As we receive further information or guidance, we will communicate any changes. This includes, but is not limited to; City Hall, Parks and Recreation facilities, city parks, Center for the Arts, Senior Center, Depot on Bradley and The Amp. Our drive-through window at City Hall will remain open for utility bill payment, but we strongly encourage customers to utilize online services for utility billing, permits, etc. Some services will also be available by phone. Please contact our main line at 770-830-2000 to be directed to the appropriate department. Specific contact information will be listed online at https://carrolltonga.com/

Essential services such as police, fire, sanitation and water will continue as normal.
