The Hopkinsville City Council is eyeing Nathaniel Pagan to be its new city administrative officer. The city has been searching for a new CAO since Glen Abee was terminated back in March.

Pagan was one of eighty-three applicants the council considered. Mayor Dan Kemp said that among the many applicants, the Daviess County Community Director seemed to be the best candidate.

The Hopkinsville City Council approved spending more than $900,000 to help fund phase-one of the city's Rails-To-Trials project. An additional $100,000 in private donations brings the total investment to $1 million for phase-one.
