Renovations are on the horizon for the kitchen of the State Theater.
Elizabethtown City Council on Monday accepted an offer from Corbett Construction Company in the amount of $ 99,750, or about $ 150,000 below budget, for the renovation.
According to the Director of Facilities Management, Scott Reynolds, the kitchen will be modernized to look more like commercial space. This includes the overhaul of the plumbing and electricity and the installation of a new air conditioning system.
The offer was approved 4-2, with board members Marty Fulkerson and Julia Springsteen as opposing voices.
During the meeting, Fulkerson said he needed to know the ROI, like how many catering events the city has lost, before agreeing to.
The council also approved adherence to a national lawsuit lawsuit against manufacturers and distributors of opioids.
After years of negotiations, the bylaw states that two “nationwide settlement agreements have been reached that would resolve all opioid-related disputes brought by state and local political subdivisions against the three largest pharmaceutical distributors, McKesson , Cardinal Health, AmersourceBergen and the manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc., and its parent company Johnson & Johnson.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky joined the two settlements and waived any claims on behalf of the city as part of the settlement process.
Additionally, council members recognized Russell Allen, heard a presentation from the citizens of Hardin County for Responsible Solar, and approved a sidewalk payment waiver for Faith Apostolic Church.
