Progress continues toward making the Todd County Career Path Institute project a reality, with Todd Fiscal Court approving another resolution regarding grant money this morning.
Court unanimously approved a resolution simply stating it is the lead agency is receiving the grant and that it will pay any cost overruns associated with the project. The resolution was necessary because Todd and Christian Counties partnered to receive 500-thousand dollars worth of federal block grant money for the project—which was awarded.
Amy Frogue of the Pennyrile Area Development District says there’s still no definitive word on the two million dollar federal grant that would ultimately make the center a reality, but she continues to work toward that end.
Ms. Frogue says she remains confident the Career Path Institute will indeed happen.
The facility would be located on the campus of Todd County Central High School and will teach students and adults technical skills such as robotics and welding to prepare them for a career in modern industry.
In other action, Todd Fiscal Court approved an agreement to make James “Rudy” Dossett the county’s Electrical Inspector and hired Steve Settle as a Solid Waste Driver for the Road Department.
