At Monday evening’s Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting, Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries said that they won’t have specific numbers on how much it will cost until they prepare all of the paperwork for the bid process, but he estimated that the state funding will pay for perhaps 70 – 75 percent of the total cost of the project.
“That has been long-discussed and long-awaited,” said Humphries. “We have been about to the end of our rope trying to get this done … I know the folks in the community and Delmont area have waited very patiently … We appreciate them sticking with us and hanging in there.”
Humphries said he spoke with state officials about the bridge last week. The bridge, located on Delmont Church Road off of Ky. 164, has been closed since last year because of the sidewalls washing away during heavy rains. Humphries says they’ll put it out to bid as soon as possible.
And a bid opening for a potential new dispatch system will be held at the Trigg County Courthouse at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28. The issue was discussed at the previous Fiscal Court meeting, but no decisions will be made until the Monday, Oct. 1, Fiscal Court meeting at 6 p.m.
