Paducah City Commission Adds More Money To Riverfront Project
Paducah’s mayor and city commissioners approved a $265,000 transfer from the General Fund to the city’s Riverfront Redevelopment Project yesterday. The money will help pay for additional work needed to install gangway pilings and will be added to the $4.5 million budget. In addition to the gangway, the city is also building a landmass that will eventually house a park adjacent to Paducah’s downtown area.
The project will also include a transient dock and marina services building. During a meeting at the riverfront site, City Engineer-Public Works Director Rick Murphy said the project needed additional funds because workers need to drive at least some of the pilings deeper than anticipated.
Commissioner Allan Rhodes voted against the funding transfer, believing the city does not need to spend the money.
