In a special-called meeting Thursday night, March 11, 2010, with Mayor Kincaid and three representatives (Abby Jones, Wayne Sim- mons and Jim Wade) from Nesbitt Engineering of Lex- ington present, it was an- nounced that $300,000 from a Transportation Enhance- ment Grant (T-21 grant) would be used to renovate downtown Owingsville, with the city and county pitch- ing in $60,000 in matching funds. Using two exhibits, Jones gave an overall account of how the money would be used and what parts of down- town would be affected. These are the areas that will be re-done -- from Brooks Alley, East to and including South Court, down Slate Av- enue, to stop just beyond the Richie Hunt Funeral Home, down East Main to and in- eluding North Court. project, the Heritage Foun- dation, which allotted the money, is concerned with "the look" of the finished product, such as benches, lights, fencing, ironworks, etc. The Foundation dis- missed Owingsville's first plans that were submit- ted. In the meantime, city and county administration changed and the Renais- sance Committee (what it was called the first-time around) had to start over. In a breakdown of mon- ey to be spent, Jones said $150,000 will be spent on decorative iron wrought fenc- es in front of the businesses on Main Street and $10,000 will be spent on a fountain in front of the courthouse. Other items to be put in - a bicycle rack in front of the Library; a brick platform in '"Iqae Pockef' to be used for future concert events and trash cans and benches for the courthouse lawn and several trees in front of the courthouse. When asked if those trees would block the view of an event taking i x Network Management Solutions • Business & Residential Computer Service Repair • Certified Computer & Network Technician Email - mike.mchale@roadrunner.’om Call Michael McHale at 606-776-5633 Visit us at www networkmanagementsolutions org place on Main Street, Jones said, '"To some extent, but there will be spaces between the trees and the trees will only be seven feet tall." Five streetlights, in the designated parameter of the renovation, will be changed to lamps with soft glows. The electrical wires for those lamps will be placed under- ground. In conclusion, Mayor Kin- caid said, 'fl'he exhibits will be at City Hall until July i, 2010, which is the kick-off for the 150 days of construction, so if you have any questions, you can view the exhibits at any time. There will be Nes- bitt inspectors on job sites at all times to make sure the jobs are being done right. There is a chance there won't be enough money to renovate North Court. If the contractor's prices for the other areas are acceptable, the North Court area will be done. We are highly optimis- tic North Court will be reno- vated also." After several questions from the audience, the meet- ing adjourned at 8:30. Dear Friends, I would like to take this time to personally ask you to vote for my father, Harold Wayne Hunt.
