MORTONS GAP, Ky. (11/8/13) –The Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of a brand new city hall located on Main Street in the historic downtown of Mortons Gap.
“It gives me great pride to see great government here today by forming teamwork of each individual government entities, from state, city, county and the citizens of Mortons Gap,” said Frank Smith, Gov. Beshear's field representative. “This is the beacon of progress for the people of Mortons Gap.”
With roughly two square miles including about 400 homes and a population of 1,000 residents, Mortons Gap is a Hopkins County city seeing steady growth, said Hopkins County Judge-Executive Donnie Carroll.
“You know I have looked over the last few years of what’s been going on in Mortons Gap and it’s phenomenal,” said Carroll. “Over $4 million in housing and with the new city hall, Mortons Gap is one of the most aggressive new cities, and I think it’s something for the citizens should be proud of.”
