Oak Grove Village still waiting
By Rebecca Feldhaus/ Kentucky New Era
Oak Grove, KY – Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority officials say they won't apply for a sewer upgrade loan until the city of Oak Grove secures water service at a proposed mall site. The upgrades are part of the requirement for a proposed mall in Oak Grove. The Kentucky New Era reports it would take a 7.5 million dollar sewer upgrade and 3 million dollars in water service to satisfy the needs of the site. Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says HWEA, as a public agency, should also gain approval from the Oak Grove City Council and a written contract from the developer before applying for the loan. A timeline for groundbreaking on the mall is still unsure.
