  • Grant County Real Estate 411

    Both Grant County and Williamstown High Schools held their proms April 9, and although the weather gave us a scare early, it turned out to be absolutely gorgeous by the time we were scheduled to take pictures. You’re probably thinking, how does that relate to real estate? Well, I was checking the Northern Kentucky multiple listing service to see what kind of homes are available right now. And just like the variety of prom dresses that the girls had to choose from, buyers also have a huge amount of inventory to choose from.

    “It’s been ugly,” that’s how Deborah Lucas Angel, president of the Grant County Farmer’s Market, describes this growing season.

    She said that some members of the Grant County Farmers Market have managed to get plants in the ground but fear now they’ll rot because of the rain followed by heat and humidity.

  • ARK EXPECTED TO GET OK FROM STATE

    The Ark Encounter expects  to get the OK from Frankfort on tax incentives through the Kentucky Tourism Development Act today, May 19.

  • IDA will take over tourism’s administrative duties

    The Industrial Development Authority will now be handling administrative duties for the Grant County Tourist and Convention Commission.

    The two sides finally came to an agreement April 26 after the proposed partnership had been discussed during several meetings.

    The move, which is expected to save the commission $10,000 annually, came after the commission voted in February to dissolve the position of director, relieving Judy Mullins of her duties.
