The Paducah City Commission approved a services agreement on Tuesday for the design and construction of an aquatics and recreation facility with a base fee of $1.1 million. The estimated budget for the construction is $15 million.
Dozens of Paducah residents showed support Tuesday night at a city commission meeting for an inaugural LGBTQ festival planned for August. Supporters of the Western Kentucky Pride Festival came to the meeting following rumored controversy that critics would petition the city to move the festival indoors. The festival is planned to take place outside at the downtown riverfront.
