Danville accepted a state check for $650,000 to help with the Hub-Gilcher project Tuesday at a reception in city hall.
The Governor's Office for Local Development and members of U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning's office came to give the money to city and county government officials.
Renaissance Kentucky Director Shawn Dyer said that Danville had some of the best movers and shakers in the state.
"Thank you for what you do for this community."
In August, Bunning was in Danville to present a check for $1.7 million federal transportation dollars to build the garage.
Dyer and Mayor John W.D. Bowling thanked Heart of Danville Executive Director Julie Wagner for her and the Heart's efforts to lobby for the money.
Bowling said that despite differences in opinion between the city and the Heart that he thought the end result was an accomplishment.
