Hoping this time the outcome will be different, the Lawrenceburg City Council is applying for a grant to fund a skate park.

The city has applied for the Land and Water Conservation Fund twice before, but officials have high hopes Lawrenceburg will receive the grant this year.

At a special called meeting last Thursday, the council voted unanimously to apply for the grant.

If awarded the grant, the city would receive $45,000 to use to build a skate park. The city would be responsible for matching the grant either monetarily or in-kind.

Mayor Edwinna Baker told the council she had discussed the grant with skate park committee members who could provide $35,000 of the city’s matching funds.

The other $10,000 would be made up through in-kind services, Baker said.
