Work Centre : The unemployed looking for a job
RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Officials in a central Kentucky city that is home to one of the country's two remaining chemical weapons destruction facilities are working on a plan to save jobs there once the work is complete in 2023.
The Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet is spending $120,000 to launch a study to look at how the Blue Grass Army Depot influences the local and regional economy. The depot supports the second-highest average employee wages in the region, bested only by the Toyota plant in Scott County.
The plant is under construction. When it's completed, it will destroy 523 tons of chemical weapons at the site south of Richmond.
The Lexington Herald-Leader and The Richmond Register reported this week on a meeting in Richmond in which Madison County officials announced the study.
