The Clark County Fiscal Court approved an agreement with the state Transportation Cabinet on Wednesday to accept nearly $770,000 of surprise funding for local road resurfacing.
Gov. Ernie Fletcher announced last week that Clark County would receive the money when he stopped in Winchester during a campaign bus tour of the region.
County Judge-Executive Henry Branham said he was unaware of the earmark, which was drawn from the cabinet's discretionary fund, until the day of the announcement. Court members indicated Wednesday that they were uncertain that the county would actually receive the funds.
"We are going to overnight (the agreement) to them, and they're going to try to expedite the process, get (Secretary Bill Nighbert) to sign it, and get it back," Branham said, cautioning that the agreement wasn't final until it received the secretary's signature.
