* The committee voted to accept a $38,800 highway safety grant to Bedford County Sheriff's Department. The grant, expected to be formally announced in the next few days, will fund three cameras in patrol cars; four radar guns; laptop computers; an alcohol sensor; and overtime staffing for DUI enforcement.
* A sidewalk grant has been obtained for $13,395 for the Learning Way/Harris Middle School area.
A budget amendment will be sent to the committee to account for the funds when they are received.
In a related matter, a budget amendment will be needed to account for the exchange of property and right-of-way to re-work the intersection of U.S. 41-A and Unionville-Deason Road, next to Community School. The commission had already approved the transaction itself, but had not put the required money in the budget.
