The council applied for additional money to fund the completion of the sidewalks at Gap Branch, Maple Street, Pirate Way and Church Street, along with the section in front of Greater Mount Sinai Baptist Church.
"It is beneficial to have the sidewalks in front of the historical buildings finished," said Mayor Tom Vicini.
The total amount of money estimated for the completion of the Main Street project is $300,000 from the Renaissance Kentucky program.
"The design work for the water project will start in February thanks to the aerial photo recently acquired," said county engineer Leo Miller.
PRIDE will provide a $30,000 grant to update the water and sewer lines.
Vicini and Miller met with PRIDE and Cumberland Valley Area Development District representatives and were informed that they would be receiving money from PRIDE to fund the project.
In other action, the council was told that the local Boy Scout troop wants to survey the Tri-Cities area concerning a recycling program as part of the spring clean up.
Lynch Police Chief Taylor Hall was discussed during an executive session.
"Chief Hall needs to patrol more of the roads instead of parking in other places; and if not patrolling the roads, then (he) needs to be at the city hall," said Vicini.
Vicini also requested that Hall get an estimate for repair work to be done on two patrol car which have been down for months.
In other business, the council:
-- announced that the city's request for grant money from the Division of Emergency Management to complete repairs on the creek walls due to erosion was denied. The council will seek funding from other sources.
-- approved unanimously that Lynch will match 20 percent of proposed money requested for the update of the city's water project.
