Two resolutions to benefit the Paron community were approved Tuesday night in a meeting of the Saline County Quorum Court.
One of the grants seeks funding for a volunteer fire association equipment project. The application will be submitted to the Arkansas Rural Development Commission to secure state grant funds in the amount of $38,944 to assist the project and and to authorize the county judge to administer the funding for the project.
The Saline County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating an alleged homicide that happened Tuesday in Bauxite.
Abel Enriquez, 65, of Bauxite is accused of killing his roommate, Anthony Ballentine, 22, also of Bauxite.
