Trenton Water Service Lines To Be Replaced

At a regularly scheduled meeting Monday evening, Trenton City Commissioners vote to approve the city’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

The budget includes a 5% cost of living raise for city employees and will take effect July 1st.

The commission also approved 2 projects totaling just over $51,000 to replace 20 steel water service lines on Clarksville Road and South Main Street in Trenton.

The service lines to be replaced were identified as part of the recent lead line survey required in each city by the Kentucky Department of Water.

The allocations for the projects are part of the nearly $98,000 the city received in ARPA funds during the COVID pandemic. The funds were originally slated for the city’s wastewater treatment project which is on hold pending action by the city of Guthrie.

Over 100 vendors will line the streets of Trenton during its annual Main Street Festival

Scheduled for June 7 and 8 in downtown Trenton, the festival will feature handmade crafts, food vendors, kid’s activities, and live music.

Fire Chief Jonathan Stahl told city commissioners that members of the fire department met with the county’s ambulance service ComCare last month.

The meeting was the first meeting of many he hopes to have as part of an effort to increase communication and cooperation between the fire department and county agencies.

The city’s annual Memorial Day Service will be held May 26 at 2 pm at the Edgewood Cemetery in Trenton.
