City of Columbia: Gas Line Project update

From Tiffany Collins

The City of Columbia is continuing to progress on several projects in the community including the Hudson Street Gas Line Project, renovations to the Little League Park, and another gas line project.

The city received an ARC (Appalachian Research Commission) grant last fall. After their notification, the federal organization that (in this case, the USDA Rural Development) met with the city and engineering representatives.

One of the primary objectives to be completed is an environmental study, which is very extensive in nature. The city is working closely with a consultant, and it is progressing. They are anticipating completion within four to six weeks of the study.

"There is a general misconception about grants and the process," said Mayor Hoots. She noted that most thought once approved, the money was immediately available. However, it is dependent on the type of grants and the appropriate documentation necessary for the plans to proceed. "We are fortunate as a city to have been able to achieve so much funding for our community, but it is a process from start to completion," she said.

The city is also working on another grant for the Little League Park. It would improve fields and lighting; as well as other items at the park. The city is still accepting letters of support for that project. You can send them to: 116 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, Kentucky 42728.

The city is also pursuing a grant for improving and replacing the old gas lines within the city limits. For questions, please contact the Mayor's Office.
