(NASHVILLE, TN), October 4, 2010 – State Senator Bill Ketron said today he has been advised by Commissioner Jim Fyke that Marshall County will receive $11,000 in grant money for the Berlin Springs Pavilion. The grant is part of the Local Parks and Recreation Fund (LPRF) which is distributed by the Department after being selected in a careful scoring process.
“Our parks are very important to our community and am very pleased that we will be receiving this grant,” said Senator Ketron. “I look forward to seeing the improvements that will come as a result of this grant.”
The grants are awarded based on revenue generated by the Real Estate Transfer Tax. The purpose of the grants is to help expand recreational opportunities in Tennessee’s communities.
