(Caneyville, KY) – The Caneyville Commissioners are considering a request made by citizen John Likins, a request for a financial donation for a cleanup project.
The cleanup needs of Caney Creek was brought to the Grayson County Fiscal Court last month by Linkins and was addressed again Monday, April 8, 2013, at the commissioners regular monthly meeting.
Linkins told the fiscal court that the flooding of Caney Creek was due to large amounts of debris on the creeks banks. The fiscal court is taking bids until April 19th for the work that will need to be completed by equipment – equipment that will not be allowed in the waterway but rather be set on the banks and remove the debris with the arm of the equipment.
Likins said he was been working to obtain easements and permits that will allow the work of almost 3.9 miles of creek bank cleanup.
Linkins has also been in contact with official in Frankfort about the project.
The commission was asked to donate funds to the project. They said they appreciated Linkins interest and hard work and would take the request under consideration, according to meeting minutes.
The Caneyville ball fields are taking shape as two of the new lights and poles have been placed. A rock bit will need to be used to break through the rock for the remaining poles.
Mayor James Embry will deliver two loads of dirt to help with leveling of the ground.
Plumbing plans for the concession stand were submitted to the state and should be available for pick up on April 12th, and the holes are being dug for the fencing on the second field.
City employee Avery Fleener reported the sewer line should be completed this week.
In other city business:
Commissioners agreed to install two toddler swings at the playground by the old school.
City Clerk Brenda Brown gave the 2nd reading of the cable franchise ordinance. The city will advertise for proposals, and the bids will be opened on May 13, 2013.
Fleener reported that a quote had been received to repair the grit chamber at the waste water plant but Kenvirons Engineering was not satisfied with the quote. Commissioners were in agreement that Kenvirons should be responsible for the repairs as well as paying for the chamber to be pumped-out.
