yonts b 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (3/12/14) — Over $145,000 in state contracts and services for Muhlenberg, Christian, and Hopkins counties were approved last week by a state legislative oversight committee, State Rep. Brent Yonts reported today.

  • An additional $604 in federal, state, and agency funds for family and social services, administered by Pennyrile Area Development District.

  • $5,675 in state funds paid to G. Herbert Pritchett of Madisonville for a commercial appraisal of a marina located in Spencer County, as part of a lawsuit filed in Spencer Circuit Court and an administrative appeal before the state Board of Tax Appeal.

  • Time extension to June 30, 2016 for a water project in the City of Hanson.
