Todd Fiscal Court made quick work of a routine agenda this morning, but did take the time to thank Christian County leadership for its recent partnership on an important project.
Christian Fiscal Court unanimously agreed to apply for a 250-thousand dollar federal block grant Tuesday that, if approved, would combine with a similar grant received by Todd Fiscal Court to pay for the matching portion of a 2-million dollar economic development grant officials in Todd County hope to obtain.
The 2.5 million dollars is what’s needed to build the Todd County Career Path Institute, which would teach industrial skills and vocations to high school students on the campus of Todd County Central High School and to adults from across the area in the evenings.
Todd County Attorney Mac Johns thanked Christian County Judge-Executive Steve Tribble and Attorney Mike Foster for following through on their commitment to the Southern Pennyrile Chamber Alliance.
Johns says the partnership is beneficial to all parties involved and shows how parties can work together.
Judge Tribble says Christian County was glad to help with applying for the grant money and believes it’s just following through on a commitment made to the chamber alliance.
In other action, Todd Fiscal Court approved a resolution to repair a bridge on Snardon Mill Road an, to replace a drainage system on Coal Bank Road and some other routine road maintenance.
