Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams reports the Fire Department has received a $122,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to improve training and readiness.  And the mayor says, because property values have increased, revenue to the city has increased, while the tax rate has remained the same, making a 3% across-the-board salary increase for city employees possible.
