  • Hodgenville projects delayed

    A combination of cold weather and the holiday schedule has delayed a pair of projects in Hodgenville, Mayor Terry Cruse told city council members Dec. 14.

    The Greensburg Street water tower project will “get going as soon as weather permits,” Cruse said. The new tower will be constructed on land adjacent to the LaRue County Fairgrounds.

    The lights at Creekfront Park are on hold until city workers can place the conduit. The project probably won’t be completed this month.
