Adair Co. Fiscal Court grant award announcement
By Gale B. Cowan
Adair County Judge Executive
I'm pleased to announce that over the holiday weekend, I received notification via email that the Adair County Fiscal Court will be receiving $65,300 in grant funding to go towards the poured-in-place surface portion of the new playground that will be installed at the Jim Blair Recreation Center.
I was very hopeful we would receive some funding to go towards this cost, but I was surprised we received as much as we did. I want to thank everyone who wrote letters of support for the grant and to the Kentucky Division of Waste Management and Lisa Evans, Grants Administrator for the Recycling & Local Assistance Branch. Now, hopefully this will give us enough reserve to add the much needed fence to this project.
The grants are from the Waste Tire Trust Fund, established by the 1998 Kentucky General Assembly to receive a $2 fee from each retail sale of a new tire in the state. The fund helps manage the approximately 5 million scrap tires generated in Kentucky each year and promotes the development of markets for recycled tire products.
