Audrain County Wins Grant

The Audrain County Road and Bridge Department has been awarded a nearly $200 thousand grant to replace three aging vehicles in their fleet.

The grant came from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

The funds came from a 2016 settlement with Volkswagen relating to the company’s sale of 590 thousand vehicles that were found to have software that caused emissions control systems to perform differently during emissions testing.

The replacement vehicles are a choice of the county and not Volkswagen brand.
