SHAMOKIN — A $5,000 Cigarette Litter Prevention program grant was received by City of Shamokin to assist in continued revitalization and beautification of the downtown area.

Denise Brown said she applied for the grant through Keep America Beautiful community impact grant in order to purchase ashtray receptacles to give businesses free of charge. The city will empty them for the first six months and after that, it will be the responsibility of the businesses.
