Gov. Matt Bevin was in Grayson Wednesday morning to grant a discretionary funding request from the city for the widening of Stevens Boulevard all the way to Smithfield Foods.

During the regular Tuesday night meeting of city council, mayor George Steele said the state had agreed to consider the $127,399.36 already spent by the city on the road-widening project as the city’s matching contribution for the grant. The state agreed to grant the funding request and awarded the city with the remaining $200,000 estimated to complete the project.
