The Leitchfield Utilities Commission recently approved the installation of a six-inch gas-line on the southside of the William Thomason Byway.

During the regularly scheduled Thursday, Aug. 21 Utilities Commission meeting, Utilities Superintendent Dwight Embry said he received a request from a business to install a two-inch new gas-line on the bypass near its location.

Embry said to benefit the entire area, he recommended the installation of a six-inch gas-line running from Hwy 62 to Grayson Springs.

However, according to Embry, the utilities could first install a 1,100 feet long gas-line, running from Hwy 62 to the business - which is halfway between Hwy 62 and Grayson Springs - and complete the gas-line at a later date.

The Utilities Commission approved the installation of a 1,100 feet gas-line at the cost of $9,000. To finish the gas-line will cost nearly the same amount.

A start date for the work was not discussed in the meeting.

In other business:

*Embry requested the Utilities Commission enter into Executive Session to discuss situations involving personnel. The issues dealt with one employee from Wastewater and one employee from the gas department.
