Plans for a community center in Prestonsburg are moving forward

The Prestonsburg City Council approved the purchase of land next to City Hall for one million dollars.
It was a tie, 4-4 vote...causing Mayor Jerry Fannin to use his tie breaker vote.
Fannin says discussions at the SOAR meeting in Pikeville helped motivate him to move forward on the project.
The other possible location was at the community college. Fannin says the land next to City Hall is right in the middle of town and will hopefully draw more people into Prestonsburg, creating more business for local stores and restaurants.
