NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Adams County is waiting to hear it will get federal money to buy a fire truck as part of obligation of its agreement with Natchez fire protection outside the city limits.

The Natchez Fire Department would use the truck to respond to fires out in the county.

County Supervisor David Carter tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1u8v2oy ) the county is waiting to hear about the grant before considering other means of funding.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency grant would provide $450,000 and requires a 5 percent match of $22,500.

Carter says soon as the grant is awarded, the county will be able to move forward with ordering the truck.
