The Brandenburg City Council approved an interlocal agreement with Meade County government as progress continues in the Riverfront Park.
Mayor Ronnie Joyner said that city and county will fund the remainder of the estimated $68,000 project. The Meade County Arts Council was awarded a $10,000 grant from Monument Chemical to begin the project. The remaining $58,000 will be divided between the county and city coffers as the county will front the full amount with the city to repay forty percent of the cost over a period of four years. The roof and structure is currently being fabricated and installation of the structure should be completed by the Memorial Day weekend depending upon the weather and river conditions.
