The status of second grant for $12,500 intended for construction of a footbridge extending across Tygart’s Creek from the Senior Community Center is also uncertain because of land agreement issues.
Construction of the bridge requires the city to obtain a permanent easement from the owner of the property opposite the Senior Community Center.
To date, the city has been unable to reach an agreement with the landowner for the placement of such an easement.
The outcome of the these two grants could play a significant role as Olive Hill continues to move forward with its push to be designated as an official Kentucky Trail Town.
