Law enforcement officers PROTECT and SERVE. Social workers HELP and PROTECT. Therapists LISTEN and HEAL. Advocates give VOICE and HOPE. What is the role of community members? When we think of Continue reading Fear Abounds→

Berea Municipal Utilities is applying for a Grant through the State Division of Local Government to upgrade sewer service in some Berea neighborhoods. Working with the Bluegrass Area Development District we have generated a random list of customers where we are required to do a face-to-face survey. This survey is required to qualify for the Grant. This Grant money would lessen the required investment the City and Berea Utilities will have to make to complete the sewer improvements.
