More than one million dollars is coming to Johnson County for different community projects.
Governor Fletcher presented several checks to the judge-executive and the road department at a chamber of commerce luncheon Wednesday afternoon.
The money will be used to improve water lines and roads, and to renovate both the old courthouse and the current senior citizen's center.
“Our discretionary funding for road projects is certainly going to benefit a lot of people in Johnson County and we're very appreciative of that and the money for the guardrail will also be very helpful to help save lives in Johnson County,” Judge Executive Tucker Daniel said.
The governor also unveiled a new sign that will be put on U.S. 23 in Paintsville.
The sign will let driver's know the Country Music Highway Museum is just ahead.
