Harnice Predicts Purchase of Guard Armory

Paducah, KY – Paducah's Clark Street National Guard Armory may soon become the new home of the McCracken County's rescue squad and an emergency operations center. Deputy Judge-Executive Doug Harnice says the state offered to sell it to the county for $240,000. Harnice says the building's price is reasonable, and it's likely the fiscal court will approve the purchase at tonight's meeting. According to the Paducah Sun, County Judge-Executive Van Newberry says an alternative is expanding the Coleman Road emergency operations center. Newberry says it's more centrally located for an emergency operations center and some facilities already exist there.
