Another round of grant funding, care of the Transportation Enhancement Grant Program, could be available and could be used to help renovate the old Cadiz Masonic Lodge building, but it will probably be the last TE grant to be offered.

This is what Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said at Monday evening’s Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting. No action was taken, but he did say there will be more discussion of this issue.

Alexander said they could apply for that second grant this year to help with the renovation of the old Cadiz Masonic Lodge building, which is home to the Trigg County Historical Society Museum. He went on to say that while they don’t know the exact amount of this second grant, it could be “a substantial amount.”

However, added Alexander. it will probably be the last grant to be funded through the Transportation Enhancement Grant Program. Trigg County Treasurer Lucy Oliver said similar grants could be available in the future under different programs.

At a Fiscal Court meeting in September, Magistrates unanimously agreed to apply for a TEA-21 (Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century) grant for $312,500 for the museum. Alexander said they are finalizing resolutions for the Cadiz City Council and the Trigg County Historical Society.
