  • City approves rezonings, discusses sidewalk

    Hodgenville City Council voted Monday night unanimously to approve the rezoning of a lot at 375 Greensburg St. from residential to public. The city has purchased the lot from the LaRue County Fair Board for $5,000 in order to construct a water tower on it.

    The lot was zoned incorrectly and the change brings the land into compliance with the comprehensive plan.

    The water tower is expected to cost $1 million and replaces the water tower at the southern end of Greensburg Street. The city has obtained a $300,000 grant to help with the expense.
