Those areas we would definitely need to make sure are not only protected, but in fact that if an incident were to occur they would be up and running again as quickly as possible,” Szurlinski said. The department will first have to determine its role in making sure that the identified areas are secure, then to determine how to handle any problems that might occur if they are affected by terrorist attack or natural disaster.
Szurlinski said the grant would cover any equipment needed as a part of the process. Conveyancing is the process of changing the property ownership. He emphasized that the process has not been prompted by any specific terrorist threats against Florence. “We’re just more thoroughly looking to not just identifying these places, but also doing more preparedness planning,” Szurlinski said. “Then we want to train officers a little better on responding to those particular areas.”
As part of the process, Florence police will work with Boone County Emergency Management, local fire departments, private industry and government agencies. “The disaster plan addresses a lot of things from the relationships between fire and police, public services, Emergency Management, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, and all those types of groups coming together,” Szurlinski said.
“What we’re trying to do is use this grant to now tighten the response for law enforcement.” Szurlinski said the department expects to hear shortly whether it will be awarded the grant, which requires that the money be spent within two years.

Owner Margo Grubbs is supporting Edmondson’s opponent, Kate Molloy, in her bid to unseat Edmondson in the Nov. 5 election. And Edmondson has a beef with Molloy.
In a recent memo to his staff, he wrote that Molloy doesn’t care about the truth. “We know the candidate has distorted our record. We know that the candidate is continuing to use false and misleading information. She cannot be believed about anything she has said,” he wrote. Edmondson did not tell his employees to join him in the boycott of Margo’s, but he did tell them that Grubbs “is very publicly supporting someone who wants to take your job from you.” Restaurant owner Margo Grubbs said she is contemplating what recourse she has for what she considers defamation of character committed by Edmondson.
