U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that Union County and the city of Morganfield were receiving a $3 million competitive federal grant to make much-needed improvements to the area’s water infrastructure.

The funding is being distributed by the U.S. Economic Development Administration and was made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

“Union County is thankful and excited to receive news of the Economic Development Administration’s $3 million CARES Act Recovery Assistance investment,” said Union County Judge-Executive Adam O’Nan. “This EDA grant will allow us to complete much-needed sewer infrastructure improvements."

Sen. McConnell says the CARES Act has previously delivered $4 million to Union County, and that overall, Kentucky has received more than $13 billion in relief.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
