Health Park Honored, Pederson Resignation Accepted
By Leah Long
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY - At the Paducah City Commission's meeting on Tuesday, Kentucky League of Cities Community Development Advisor Bobbie Bryant presented the commission with an Enterprise Cities Award for the Pat & Jim Brockenborough Rotary Health Park on North 13th Street. The award recognizes city projects or programs making a true impact in their communities.

"The nomination submitted for the Enterprise city award said the park is an example of passionate citizens and an engaged city government helping to accomplish more together than either could ever do on their own," Bryant told the commission.

It is the second year in a row that Paducah has won for a project in the historic Fountain Avenue neighborhood.

Bryant said this year’s award recognizes the work by the City of Paducah, various partner agencies, and volunteers in creating the health park.
The program is sponsored by Collins & Company, Inc. The sponsor provides $1000 for each winning program to help continue its success.

Bowling Green and Morgantown also won awards.

In other council business, a municipal order was  approved authorizing City Manager Jeff Pederson’s severance and release agreement. Pederson was asked to resign last week. His last day is scheduled for January 12, 2018.
