ASHLAND, Ky. — King’s Daughters Health System is set to purchase the Bellefonte Pavilion for $3 million. According to KDMC, the move will result in relocating 300 jobs and creating 150 new jobs.
The Greenup Fiscal Court opened sealed bids on Monday for purchase of the Pavilion. The special meeting was called, not because of the bids, but because one of the court members had previously communicated to the court that they would not be able to attend the regularly scheduled court meeting.
Two bids were offered for the pavilion building and all property involved with it — the property was donated to Greenup County by Bon Secours Health System. It was declared surplus in December.

Spring is Coming!
Yes, there are 29 days until Spring. Though it won't be that long until we feel the warmth of spring’s days. I think we all need a little pick me up! Let’s get it…. Over the next three weeks the Alliance, and more importantly our new businesses, have 5 Ribbon Cuttings scheduled. We will live stream each one of them and encourage all who attend to join us safely, using practical social distancing measures for all.
We also have a great Lunch and Learn on February 25th discussing everybody’s favorite topic — TAXES! This virtual event hosted by our own John Spears from Kelley Galloway Smith Goolsby, PSC is very timely. With taxes due, stimulus checks, and PPP income all businesses need a fresh look at their taxes. Even in this time of snow and ice, things are happening! Kari has been busy with many of you reviewing how we, the Alliance, can help you market your business. Missy is working with our schools on Leadership Programs and Susan is a busy bee out seeing you the members.
We have reason to be hopeful moving forward. We are seeing the light and days are getting longer. We would love the opportunity to sit down with you and develop ways to further your business’ success. From the desk of the Alliance, thank you for what you do and for making this the community we call home.
