The Fayette County Commissioners recently voted to accept advisory services from Cultivate Collectors’ Services out of Columbus for the review, evaluation and determined replacement value of the three hand-painted murals by Archibald Willard at the Fayette County Courthouse. That includes the review of historical records related to the commission, restoration and authentication of the murals.
The Commissioners have also entered into an agreement with the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging for the Home Energy Assistance, or HEAP, program. The funds will be provided through the Fayette Commission on Aging. The contract, not to exceed $3,800, runs from September 1st of 2019 to August 31st of 2020.
The Commissioners also renewed a lease with Mid Atlantic Storage Systems Inc for a parcel of land used by the company for storage. The four-acre tract is located on the southwest side of Robinson Road in Union Township. That’s a five-year renewal at $1000 per year through the end of August 2024.
The Commissioners also voted to allow Brandstetter Carroll Inc. to proceed with the preparation of a grant application for federal assistance to reconstruct a parallel taxiway at the Fayette County Airport. The total cost of the project is roughly $1.76-million with a local cost of a little more than $88-thousand. The federal portion requested is around $1.59-million, with requests for state funds at $88,300.
