Two western Kentucky towns awarded money for major projects


KENTUCKY (WEHT) – Two western Kentucky towns are awarded help from the state for major projects.

The state department of local governments awarded Livermore in McLean County $500,000 to renovate their fire station.

Fire Chief Thomas Brown says it should give them more training room and help with recruiting.

The fire department’s headquarters was first built in the early 1920s and was also once city hall.

“It’s been a struggle at times. We had to buy an apparatus. One thing we had to make sure was the height of the truck. We had to pass up different apparatuses that would’ve fit our needs.”

The department also awarded $500,000 to the city of Lewisport in Hancock County to build a new library near their city hall.
