The Corinth City Commission is weighing it’s option concerning the boat dock lease on Corinth Lake.

John “Bud” White leased the boat dock from the city, but died Dec. 12, 2010. His lease with the city expires later this year.

Jeff Crosby, a fisheries biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife attended the January commission meeting and asked the commission to consider cleaning the area around the lake and adding “bank fishing with construction of a fishing pier and more of a park-like setting.”

Crosby said funds for the improvement project could be available at the “end of 2012.”

In other business, the commission:
• Hired Pete Whaley as the new city attorney for Corinth. Whaley replaces April Gatlin, who resigned from the position after relocating to Cincinnati.
• Heard a report concerning the Marathon Drive sewer expansion project. The physical phase is complete. The city is pursuing funding for sewage treatment access roads, replacement of a pump station and equipment.
