CLARKSVILLE — Six new homes through U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants will complete a whole dozen in Clarksville.
At a Tuesday Clarksville City Council meeting, grant writer Kathy Boyles presented bids from local construction companies to build the homes, and Ron Doe Home Builders of Paris was selected as the lowest bidder at $94,400. Boyles also recently worked with the City of Deport to bring new homes to Lamar County.
In other business, Police Chief Mark Gable and Fire Chief Rocky Tolison gave the council updates from the past month, both reflecting on a massive fire that broke out in a historic building in the 100 block of East Broadway in late October.
The council praised Tolison and his department, as well as Gable, for their prompt response to the blaze, and Tolison thanked the 18 fire departments and volunteer fire departments that responded to help out
