In what was described as an historic Bourbon County event, Judge Mike Williams and Michael Hurter, who represented owners of a 330 acre site north of Paris executed closing documents on the county’s purchase of the site proposed as a future recreational facility. Judge Williams said that the project was the culmination of a some three-year effort to secure a site for a multi-purpose recreational facility in Bourbon County.
Judge Williams touted the benefits of a suitable area for expanding recreational facilities. But Judge Williams also noted that the availability of suitable recreational facilities and programs is a key ingredient in the continuing effort to recruit industry and jobs to Bourbon County.
