A special presentation was made at Tuesday night’s regular meeting of the Granbury City Council to show appreciation to law enforcement and first responders. It was a continuation of an outpouring of support that began after the ambush of police officers in Dallas a couple of weeks ago.

Individuals and businesses in the community continue to give a strong show of support to local law enforcement.

Police Chief Mitch Galvan, Sheriff Roger Deeds and Granbury Fire Chief Brent Blackmon were present for the presentation by Carrie Bellamy.

Bellamy represented a group of individuals and businesses that raised money to provide employees of the Granbury Police Department and the Hood County Sheriff’s Office with Grump’s Burgers gift cards. Between both departments, there is a total of about 170 employees. Granbury’s Fire Station #1 will be receiving 225 cases of water. Each case contains 24 bottles.

Each gift will be accompanied by a letter expressing appreciation for the daily service, bravery and dedication exhibited by first responders.
