Last month Fiscal Court members voted to set aside up to $1 million of its $2.2 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for potential water and sewer infrastructure at a projected resort and ma- rina to be located at Stoney Cove Recreation Area on Cave Run Lake. Representatives from Gateway Area Develop- ment District including Executive Director Joshua Farrow and Project Direc- tor Jocelyn Gross were in attendance at last Thurs- day’s meeting and dis- cussed the need for a study to determine exactly what water and sewer infrastruc- ture was available and what might be needed. ' Farrow noted that Bath County has received $459,075 from the state through Senate Bill 36 this year, which set aside funds to each county from $250 million received through federal coronavirus relief funds earlier this year. He said in June, represen- tatives from Bath County’s six utility districts (Bath County Water District, Bath County Sanitation District, City of Owings- ville Water District, City of Owingsville Sewer District, City of Sharpsburg Sewer, and the Sharpsburg Water District) met and initially decided to divide up the money equally and provide funding for projects within each district. Farrow said after that, he was paid a visit by Dennis Keene, Commissioner for the Department for Local Government, who indi- cated that the funds might not best be used if they were divided up equally and might be better used for economic development in the best interest of the entire county. He said after some con- sideration, it seemed that “Sharpsburg seems to have the greatest potential for economic development in the area.” Gross said the next step would be to conduct an infrastructure feasibility study in the Sharpsburg area to determine what resources are available, what is needed, and what is possible. She said any fu— ture grants the county may receive to assist with eco- nomic development would require this study. Gross explained that the cost of the study would be between $20,000 and $80,000, and the Fiscal Court could use both funds received through the American Rescue Plan Act as well as Senate Bill 36 funds. , i Farrows . said there is also an additional $50 mil- lion available through v Senate Bill 36 for individ- ual projects, but only on a competitive basis. He Said that so far, over $650 mil- lion worth of projects from 102 different counties have been submitted for that limited pot of funds. Gross also said that addi- tional funding may become available if the federal infra— structure bill passes Con- gress this year. Sharpsburg City Coun- cil members have been reluctant to commit to any recent requests to expand its own city sewer system to meet the needs of busi- nesses outside of the city limits. Mayor Dorothy Clem— ons has said she has been approached multiple times over the last few months by County J udge-Executive Bobby Rogers, Commis- sioner Millard Petitt, local resident Steve Calvert, and the Sharpsburg Country Mart owner, about an ex- pansion. During the August 2 meeting of the Sharpsburg City Council, council mem- bers voted to not partici- pate in any feasibility study. Mayor Dorothy Clemons and council members said at that meeting the new businesses should have ap- proached the city council to discuss their infrastruc- ture needs prior to starting their developments. “A poor community can’t sustain them,” she noted. Jeff and Christy Vice, co—owners of the Barnyard Venue, were in attendance at Thursday’s meeting and expressed their thanks to Fiscal Court members. “We appreciate every- thing everybody is doing to help us,” Jeff Vice said. He noted that they are now up to 100 employees and are expecting to hire up to 170. The Barnyard is locat- ed about a mile south of Sharpsburg on Highway 36. It began hosting musi- cal performances on July 3 and is scheduled to host Travis Tritt on September 19, Hank Williams, Jr. on October 8, Big and-Rich on October 15 and Jamey Johnson on October 16. When finally completed the Barnyard’s Riverbend— style pavilion will be able to seat 5000 people, with room for more, on the 170 acre Cloverbrook Farm. In other matters before the court: * Sheriff Jessie Stewart noted during his monthly activity report that the Bath Grand Jury had is- sued 48 indictments re- cently for mainly drug- related charges, and he and his deputies would be picking those individuals up to be arrested in~the coming days. He also said this number will increase. During the monthly Trea- surer’s reporter, Julie Cline said the county’s jail expenses for the month of July was $623336. Judge Rogers noted that there were 45 inmates from Bath County in the Rowan County Detention Center t as of last Wednesday. The county’s jail bill had previ- ously reached a high point in October 2017 of Over $66,000. Court members ap- proved an agreement and resolution with the Ken- tucky Transportation Cabi- net to receive $183,156 in flex funds for paving coun- ty roads, which Judge Rog- ers said would begin in the next 30 days. These roads include Road, Peaceful is w ,, , Hollow Road, Sour Springs Road, Riddle Road, Forge, Hill Road, and Crockett Lane. Hinkle Construction; will be the contractor for these resurfacing projects. * Court members ap- proved a resolution to ap- ply for a Community Block Development Grant for a new building for the Bath County Ambulance Ser-~ vice. * They approve a con- tract with Walker Con- struction to resurface Rog-' ,‘ ers Mill Road and Eldon Road. They also approved the resurfacing of 1500 feet of Pottersville Road, which is near the Montgomery and Menifee County lines in Hope. The project will cost an estimated $14,000. * Jocelyn Gross with Gateway ADD is assisting with putting together a re- quest for proposals (RFP) for a grant for replacement of equipment at Bath Coun- ty 911 Dispatch, following a lightning strike last month. * County Attorney Kim Price announced that her office had secured another child support grant in the amount of $12,991 * Court members met in closed session for about 45 minutes to discuss poten- tial/pending litigation and took no action upon return- ing to open session.
