Todd County Fiscal Court continued the process of choosing an architect for the Career Path Institute industrial training center, and they heard more from the County Attorney regarding the proposed Clarksville natural gas line project Friday morning.
A committee of Beverly Atwood from Hopkinsville Community College, Todd County Schools Superintendent Wayne Benningfield, Judge Executive Daryl Greenfield and Magistrate John Camp will look over proposals from architects, which will be accepted until October 25th.
Pennyrile Area Development District Director of Community Development Amy Frogue says its one of the first steps toward getting the major project started.
Meanwhile, Todd County Attorney Mac Johns told the court he recently met with a Clarksville City Council committee regarding the controversial natural gas line project, which will likely result in an eminent domain battle. Johns says his stance that Todd County would receive liability and danger without the benefit of being able to start its own utility seemed to be received well by committee members and he hopes to build on that.
In other action, Hillbilly Racing owner David Porter addressed noise complaints made by residents living near the racetrack on Pete Wheeler Road in Daysville. A petition was sent to the county asking them to shut the racing down at 10 p.m. Saturday nights and Johns said the county will try to work with all parties to resolve complaints while also allowing the racers to have a good time.
