In the Leitchfield City Council's first meeting of 2014 on Monday night, several items of business were covered, including the approval of a resolution to transfer $231,500 from the city's treasury to the Leitchfield Public Utilities Commission for the purpose of building a sewer for the new Board of Education building. The money being transferred has been held in reserve by the city since the 2004 sale of city-owned land to the Grayson County Board of Education.
Additionally, the City Council approved a resolution which allows the City of Leitchfield to apply for a state grant which would pay 75 percent of the cost of replacing the existing mulch with more durable crumb rubber at James D. Beville, B. G. DeWitt, and Firefighter's Memorial Parks. The city would be responsible for 25 percent of the cost of replacing the mulch, which includes labor, publicity and promotion, while the grant would cover the cost and delivery of materials.
Finally, a proposal was passed which declares January 2014 to be School Board Recognition Member Month. In unanimously passing the resolution the City Council urges the citizens of Grayson County to honor current school board members Carolyn Thomason, Valerie Hayes-Hicks, Mona Fulkerson, Charlotte Gower, and Anna Majors for their exemplary service to the community.
