LIBERTY - With the help of state funds, a new bridge will be constructed over Goose Creek on Windsor Road.
Judge-Executive Ronald Wright told Casey Fiscal Court Monday that the county will get up to $160,000 from the state Transportation Cabinet for the construction. The court passed a resolution to accept the money and will be responsible for the remainder of the costs. Wright said he does not expect the bid to be under $160,000.
The court agreed to advertise for bids on the project.
In other road matters, the court agreed to accept .514 of a mile of Jimmy Combs Road into the county maintenance program. Wright said it has a 30-foot right-of way and meets the criteria for a county road.
In financial matters, the court amended the budget to include more than $800,000 of unanticipated funds.
Wright said the money comes from taxes, fees from sale of equipment, medical allowance for the jail, and economic development.
