STAMPING GROUND — During the bi-weekly city council meeting on Tuesday night in Stamping Ground, one of the main talking points was the awarding of $56,000 to the city of Stamping Ground from Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell’s CARES Act. However, the city was not able to receive the entire amount in one lump sum, instead asking for a payment of $27,000. Stamping Ground was then awarded $46,218 and will receive the rest of the $9,782 at a later date.
Other business discussed at the Sept. 1 meeting:
— Stamping Ground City Council voted to keep property tax in Stamping Ground the same.
— AT&T is looking at Stamping Ground and Sadieville for an experimental testing with internet hotspots, to boost internet activity and signal in the cities. There will be more information to come on this topic.
