The TVA grant would be used to make some major improvements to the Cadiz-Trigg County Chamber of Commerce’s log cabin in downtown Cadiz that formerly served as the tourism office, said Cadiz Mayor Lyn Bailey, who added that they will improve the building’s energy efficiency.
While there aren’t any immediate plans for the old building now that it has been given to the City of Cadiz, they are hoping to make improvements to it and then find a use for it, Bailey said.
The city council also unanimously approved a resolution applying for more Renaissance on Main funding.
In other business, the city council approved the monthly financial report, with Cadiz City Clerk Lisa Rogers pointing out some additional income from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Cadiz Public Works Director Kerry Fowler told the city council that the sewer system improvement project will begin this week in Cadiz, and that it is expected to be complete by the spring of 2010.
Also present at the meeting were four members of Boy Scout Troop No. 57, as well as Grow Trigg members Linda and Roger Humbert.
Linda Humbert said the group was thankful for the city’s efforts to have Cadiz reclassified from a Class Five to a Class Four City. Results of that effort have not been announced yet.
