Three projects totaling $8 million on tap for 2011
By Frank Johnson
The city of Bardstown is preparing to spend a combined $8.6 million on three major water and sewer infrastructure projects this year in an effort to meet surging demand for city services and remain ready for future growth.
The amount marks the city’s most expensive effort to upgrade its facilities in the last decade, according to city Chief Financial Officer Mike Abell. The majority of the money for projects comes in the form of low-interest loans from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.
