Mayor says COTW to hear update on tornado shelters, recycling program

Hopkinsville Mayor Wendell Lynch says when the City Council Committee of the Whole meets next week, it will hear updates on the city’s recycling program and about the potential for storm shelters in the city.

The mayor says Christian County Emergency Management Director Randy Graham will talk to councilmembers about what options may be available regarding storm shelters after grants were applied for following tornadoes in December and January.

Solid Waste Enterprise Director Toni Sicari is also expected to be back before council with a recommendation on how to continue with the recycling program and make it financially solvent.
