Paducah city leaders need to decide next step in riverfront development project

Posted: Updated:
PADUCAH, KY -

Paducah city leaders are looking at what the next step is for the riverfront development project.

Paducah Riverfront Development Authority chairman Bruce Brockenborough met with city manager Jeff Penderson on Wednesday.

In that meeting, Brockenborough reportedly said the city commission needs to make a decision on how to fund the project and get it going.

The options before the city commission:
- Make a decision on the bids that were submitted on September 9th
- Pursue bonds to help cover the additional cost not covered by grants
- Take the project out to bid for a third time

The current bid for the project is $3 million over budget.

PRDA board members say they plan to attend the city commission's next meeting, which is set for October 6.
