County to lease property to country club
Nola Sizemore Staff Writer
Members of the Harlan Fiscal Court recently agreed to lease property they own adjoining the Lynch Country Club to that facility.
“The little Lynch Country Club has been around forever — a little seven-hole golf course,” said Magistrate David Kennedy. “It’s probably the only one left in the nation. The county owns some property adjacent to the golf course and the club is interested in leasing that property, which lies between the golf course and the little factory we have up and running up there. It’s in a little hollow.”
Club representative Mike Obradovich told the court the reason is to extend the golf course to nine holes.
“We’re not using this property and chances are we never will,” said Kennedy. “I think this will help with tourism in the area.”
In the lease agreement, the county agreed to keep the existing road on this property as a county roadway.
In other court activity, Peggy Dugger approached the court asking that the road leading to her home, Low Water Drive near Rosspoint, be renamed in honor of her grandmother. She noted there are only three homes on this roadway.
Harlan County Emergency Management Director David McGill said a few years ago the county decided to stop naming roads after people upon the recommendation of the state.
Harlan County Judge-Executive Joe Grieshop then advised Dugger to contact his office at a later date after he checks with the state to see if any action can be taken on this issue.
A representative from the Harlan County Detention Center reported the jail harvested 18 tons of potatoes, 2,961 gallons of green beans and 2.5 tons of turnips in their garden project to assist with feeding inmates at the facility.
