New van for seniors delivered
After working for well over a year for it, the Magoffin County Senior Citizens received their new van to help with delivering meals and transporting seniors. The van was purchased from the Bachman Auto Group using a USDA grant, valued at $20,002, with matching funds coming from the Magoffin County Community Foundation, providing $3,857.50, and the Magoffin County Fiscal Court, contributing $2,809.50, totaling $26,669. Big Sandy Area Development District helped the county secure the funds to be used for the van, which as has been reported in the past, was much-needed. On Wednesday, April 18, Magoffin County Judge Executive Charles Hardin ceremoniously handed over the keys to the senior citizens.
