FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 25, 2018) – The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced an Area Development Fund (ADF) grant of $3,625 to the City of Fairfield.

The grant will allow the city to make repairs and upgrades to Fairfield City Hall, located at 103 W. Main St. The project includes masonry repair to the front of the building; installation of a new metal handrail along the back entrance and steps; cleaning and repainting of exterior surfaces; the addition of rock to the side parking area; and weatherproofing.

“As the city’s main government building, it’s important that Fairfield City Hall is both inviting and accessible to members of the public,” DLG Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo said. “These improvements will lend to the building’s aesthetic, but they will also make the building safer and more accessible to the public.”

“This project may consist of small upgrades, but these are much-needed repairs that will make an impact on City Hall,” Sen. Jimmy Higdon said. “I commend the leadership of Fairfield for seeking these funds and look forward to seeing them put to good use.”
“This is a much welcome investment for the City of Fairfield,” Rep. Chad McCoy said. “I’d like to thank Commissioner Dunahoo and the staff at the Department for Local Government for their assistance on this project.”

The ADF Grant program was established by the 1976 Kentucky General Assembly to fund projects that contribute to community or industrial development. The funds are administered by DLG, an arm of the Office of the Governor dedicated to supporting local officials and communities. For more information, visit dlg.ky.gov.
