The Madisonville City Council unanimously approved a $70,000 loan to the Hopkins County-Madisonville Library renovation project Monday night.

If accepted by the library board, the low-interest loan from the city would be used towards paying off the remaining $69,000 of the prevailing wage judgment issued by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet in May.  

Hopkins County will not seek a $4 million fundraising campaign to support the county’s planned regional sports complex.

The Recreation, Buildings and Grounds Committee Tuesday told representatives from Strategic Development Consultants the county would not need their services.
