St. Joseph’s $551,340 share of CARES Act federal funding will be split between public safety and public health needs, the City Council decided Aug. 3. Congress passed the measure in the spring with the money distributed by the states to each locality based on population. The money can only be used for expenses related to the coronavirus pandemic. The public safety expenses of $227,235 includes radios for police and firefighters, police department computer equipment, election equipment and plexiglass barriers. Public health needs include office spacing in several departments, heating and air conditioning updates in the Government Center, wash stations in the parks, electronic and computer equipment and a pickup for Public Works.
