LIBERTY - Gate Way Park and more than eight acres along Green River will soon be back in the hands of Casey Fiscal Court.
Magistrates agreed Monday to accept an offer from The Roman Catholic Bishop of Louisville and passed a resolution to use the property for the "common good and general welfare of Casey County, subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions" proposed by the bishop.
"The park is a great asset to the community and we want to see it continue to be," said Judge-Executive Ronald Wright. "Most everyone is positive about the park, and we need to keep it going."
Wright said work needs to be done to the community center and some other repairs need to be addressed.
"I don't see any major changes in the park at this time," he said.
The property will cost the county $1. It will be used exclusively for the community and "will provide a public center for recreation, education and the arts in a non-discriminating fashion for all members of the community," according to the agreement.
