The Grayson County Fiscal Court holds its regular meeting on Tuesday evening.

It was announced this week that the Grayson County Detention Center has received more than $27,000 in grant funding to purchase new Tasers for the facility.

Grayson County Jailer Jason Woosley said, during Tuesday's regular Grayson County Fiscal Court meeting, that the jail had received a $27,729 Homeland Security grant, which he will use to purchase 25 Tasers.

The total cost of the 25 Tasers will be $30,735, and the fiscal court voted Tuesday to authorize the jail's purchase of them.

Woosley also informed the court that construction on the detention center's $12,804,635.75 expansion is currently between 25 and 30 days ahead of schedule. Construction began during the summer, and has been estimated to take around 17-18 months to complete.

In other business, the fiscal court:

*Voted to approve the second and final reading of an ordinance permitting local law enforcement to enforce Grayson County burn bans, violations of which can lead to a fine of $50-$500. Previously, only the Kentucky Division of Forestry was authorized to do so.
