State Librarian and Kentucky Department for Libraries (KDLA) Commissioner Terry Manuel announced that Letcher County Clerk Winston Meade has received a grant of $12,100 from the KDLA to preserve and manage local government records.
“These funds will allow local agencies to preserve, manage and provide access to records in a way that benefits both the agency and the public,” Manuel said. “It is important to ensure that citizens have access to the local records now and in the future.”
Funds for the program come from fees enacted by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1984 and 2007 to preserve and retain local public records. Any local government agency can apply for this grant.
