After nearly doubling it's original budget to meet state building codes the new Marshall County Health Department should open next April. 

The project met a setback in the fall of 2011 when officials learned that the virtually completed building didn’t meet state building codes and wasn’t in compliance with Americans With Disabilities Act regulations. The board of health was forced to allocate an additional 2 million dollars from county reserves to bring the building up to code.

The Marshall County Board of Health voted unanimously Friday to allocate $2.2 million from the county’s reserve to bring the new Health Department building up to code.

The $4.1 million building does not meet Kentucky safety requirements. The Board had considered borrowing the money, but decided to use some of the county’s reserve instead. Marshall County Judge Executive Mike Miller said this will bring the reserve down below the level he’d like to see it, but it will be replenished in a year’s time.

We continue our occasional series about young artists whose foundations are in western Kentucky but whose work is bringing them success in larger market areas. We've visited with Vic Mazzone in Los Angeles and Candra Kennedy in Philadelphia. This time we go to Nashville for a profile on an indie artist who was born in Murray, raised in Marshall County. Jordan Hamlin is multi-instrumentalist in Nashville's indie music scene.  She tours with Katie Herzig, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and others.
