Crumb Rubber Grant Information

March 13, 2015

If you are interested in a grant for crumb rubber – please see below:

 

Dear Applicants,

Please find attached the application package for the Kentucky Division of Waste Management’s 2015 Crumb Rubber Landscaping Grant.  The application can also be found at our website.

In 2014, some media reports raised concerns about adverse health effects associated with the use of crumb rubber on athletic fields or playgrounds.  Our review of the existing scientific information, consisting of numerous small scale studies of the characteristics of crumb rubber in various applications, did not indicate any strong correlation between the use of crumb rubber and adverse health effects.  However, due to ongoing questions and concerns, we have decided to suspend grants for the application of crumb rubber on athletic fields or playgrounds until such time that we can more conclusively answer any questions raised by the public.

For those applicants that had intended to pursue a grant for crumb rubber projects for playgrounds or athletic fields, we encourage you to consider applying for this landscaping mulch grant instead.  Applications are due at our office no later than 4:30 p.m. in March 16th, 2015.  If you have any questions about this grant program, please consult the attached application package or contact Lisa Evans (lisa.evans@ky.gov or 502-564-6716) or myself.

We are anticipating a strong response and encourage you to take advantage of this great grant opportunity.

Sincerely,

Gary Logsdon

Wal-mart Stores Inc. has begun accepting applications for its new store in Shepherdsville.

The company plans to hire about 300 people to work at the store, which is slated to open in this spring, according to a news release.

WDRB-TV reported in June that the store is Bullitt County’s first and will be located on Conestoga Parkway. The store will be about 180,000 square feet and will have a fuel center, according to the report.

Most of the new hires will begin working in January to prepare the store for its grand opening.

Wal-Mart has opened a temporary hiring center at 1707 Cedar Grove Road, Suite 12, in Shepherdsville’s Cedar Grove Business Park. Applicants also may apply online at careers.walmart.com.

The company said that through its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, it will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged in the last 12 months.

Wal-Mart also has plans to build stores on Outer Loop in Okolona, at 18th Street and Broadway in Louisville’s West End, and in Crestwood.

Salt River Regional Wastewater Workgroup To

Hold Public Hearings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Salt River Regional Wastewater Workgroup (SRRWW) will hold a public hearing to discuss wastewater treatment alternatives being studied within the Salt River Basin Watershed.

Formed in April 2014 in response to HB26 (2011), the SRRWW consists of representatives from Bullitt County Fiscal Court, Bullitt County Sanitation District, City of Mount Washington, City of Shepherdsville, Louisville and Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District, Oldham County Environmental Authority and the Oldham County Fiscal Court.

A study is currently underway inventorying existing wastewater capacities and assessing projected future needs within the Salt River Basin to determine if the formation of a Regional Wastewater Commission is recommended.

In an effort to solicit public comment, three hearings were held in late September and early October at the 30% completion point of the study. The next public hearing was on Thursday December 4th at the 60% point. This meeting will review the final findings of the study for presentation to local officials. The meeting will be at KIPDA (11520 Commonwealth Drive, Louisville, KY 40299) in the Burke Room on Monday January 12th at 10:00 am.
