Hardin County Executive Urges Move Of Government Offices

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - The Hardin County judge-executive says government should move its offices out of downtown Elizabethtown.

Harry Berry this week proposed building a new structure in the north part of the city, making it cheaper to expand services and improve parking.

Downtown merchants are leery, several saying foot traffic generated by people doing business at the courthouse spills over to benefit their shops.

Clothing store owner Al Rider says Elizabethtown has a good downtown program that he'd hate to see disturbed.

Store owner Brian Kerr says downtown shopping traffic is already slow and would become a "ghost town" if county government left.
