Two acres donated the county to Grayson County Food Bank

Grayson County Fiscal Court donates land to food bank, will pay 1.8 million to re-pave roads

At the Grayson County Fiscal meeting on Friday afternoon, Patty Dunaway, Chief District Engineer, presented a plan for re-surfacing roughly 13 miles of county roads at a cost of $1,815,952.00. The roads to be re-surfaced include:
  • KY Hwy 878 from the Grayson County/Ohio County line to Vic Young Road, a distance of 2.3 miles, at a cost of $158,786.00.
  • KY Hwy 110 from KY Hwy 736 to end of state maintenance, a distance of 1.6 miles, at a cost of $116,076.00.
  • KY Hwy 411 from Raymers Cemetery Road to KY 187, a distance of 3.6 miles, at cost of $467,175.00.
  • KY Hwy 736 from KY Hwy 79 to US 62, a distance of 2.9 miles, at a cost of $193,752.00.
  • KY Hwy 2778 from KY Hwy 3210 to KY 224, a distance of 3.1 miles, at a cost of $201,819.00.
Also included in the cost of re-surfacing the roadways are $674,500.00 for routine maintenance and traffic, as well as $3,862.00 for County Judge Execute expense.

The projects are scheduled to be completed by June of this year.

The Fiscal Court meeting recessed as court members traveled to the Grayson County Detention Center, where County Judge Executive Gary Logsdon revealed that the county was donating two acres of property next to the jail to the Grayson County Food Bank.

Logsdon also revealed that the Fiscal Court was investigating the financial feasibility of adding a “pod” to the existing detention center in which to house female prisoners who are currently housed in the old jail.

According to Logsdon, the feasibility study will likely conclude that it will be less expensive for the county to maintain only one jail facility instead of the two the county currently maintains.

Fiscal Court also agreed to re-appoint Kevin Brooks to the Grayson County Tourism Commission. Brooks was chosen to replace Marty Higdon on the Tourism Commission last year and finished the one year remaining on Higdon’s term after he resigned.

Brooks’ term on the commission is for three years.
