BURGIN - Burgin's water tower will be cleaned and painted next year.
Work had been scheduled to begin Dec. 1, but after a preconstruction meeting Wednesday, it apparently will be delayed until spring.
The project will be paid for by a $98,600 state grant, $21,000 of which comes from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Members of the City Council, engineers, the city's attorney and clerk, a representative of the state Division of Water, representatives of the company chosen to do the job and county officials met to discuss the project Wednesday.
Jeff Hildebrandt of Currens Co. of Harrodsburg and Steve Arnold of Strand Engineers talked about the time needed for any coatings put on the tower to cure.
