Garrard park receives grant
LANCASTER - New water lines will be installed at the Jaycee Park south of Lancaster with a $100,000 grant from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.
The money was accepted Tuesday by the Garrard County Fiscal Court. Magistrates were told that the grant funds have to go through the court. The park, which contains mostly baseball fields, is owned by the City of Lancaster and Garrard County.
"The water lines there are ancient," said county attorney Jeff Moss.
"A hundred thousand dollars ought to do more than put in water lines," said magistrate Joe Leavell.
"It should, yeah," said Moss.
The project could involve extending lines from the main line in the park, Moss said. Plenty of water pressure currently exists there, he said.
