In attendance: Jason Ballard, Matt Peak & Spalding Hurst of the Bardstown Boaters, Dawn Ballard with the department of Tourism, Nicky Rapier with Economic Development, Mayor Dick Heaton, City Engineer Larry Hamilton, Administrator Larry Green and Financial Officer Mike Abell.
The meeting was held to discuss hiring RiverRestoration.org to do a conceptual desing on the Beechfork Whitewater Park. It was decided upon to use various funds raised through website design trade by Spalding Hurst, fundraising by the Bardstown Boaters, funds from the City of Bardstown and Tourism money to pay for the preliminary work.
Currently an official proposal for the work is being awaited from RiverRestoraion.org. Also Larry Hamilton will be in touch with the Colorado based firm to discuss more details about the conceptual design work.
