Williamstown Schools, Pendleton Fiscal Court Awarded State Grants
The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) announced $309,946 in grant funding awards for landscaping, walking trails, and pour-in-place surfacing projects that utilize recycled waste tires.
The grants are from the Waste Tire Trust Fund, established by the 1998 Kentucky General Assembly to receive a $1 fee from each retail sale of a new tire in the state. The fund helps manage the approximately 5 million scrap tires generated in Kentucky each year and promotes the development of markets for recycled tire products.
Local recipients include Williamstown Independent Schools and Pendleton County Fiscal Court.
The school district was awarded $6,660 for work at a nature trail at Williamstown Junior/Senior High School.
The fiscal court received $6,248 for landscaping work at the courthouse square.
