Russell Springs Mayor Hollis DeHart announced that an open house for the new Russell Springs Municipal Building will be Friday, Sept. 10.
The event will offer a free tour of both the city hall and police department facilities which opened earlier this year.
The building will be open regular business hours that day but hopes folks will come out and view the new building on Main St.
In other happenings in the meeting:
• DeHart said that Robertson Rd. had been blacktopped all the way around to Butler from Hwy. 80. The mayor said Alexander Rd., Apache Avenue, Jewell St., Gentry Mill Rd., Emerson Drive and Creelsboro St. also needed some patchwork or blacktopping.
"We can just do what we can do with the money that we have," he said.
"We have earned about $27,000 in road aid money."
That money is anticipated for use next year or possibly this coming fall, according to the mayor.
• The council approved to give a small piece of property off of Dowell Rd. near the Russell County Hospital to the hospital for an extended parking area.
All the city asked for was a 100 ft. roadway for access to the water tower for maintenance purposes, which they received
• The city agreed to let F & C Fencing erect a 300 ft. fence near the building of the new Russell County Detention Center.
The fiscal court had agreed to the move earlier this summer.
