PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - The state has sent approval for the city of Pineville to annex Pine Mountain State Park into the city limits.
The state sent a memorandum of understanding to the Pineville City Council to annex the lodge and restaurant.
The mayor says now they are working out the legal issues and finalizing a deal.
If annexed, Pineville will collect occupational and restaurant taxes at the park.
“I think it will benefit the city as well as the state and our goal, you know, is to better our community and I think it will do that,” Mayor Sherwin Rader said.
The mayor believes city council and the state department of parks will reach a deal soon and then the city council is expected to annex the park.
