Jessamine County Notes: Grant will give playground new surface

Jessamine County Fiscal Court has received a crumb-rubber grant in the amount of $17,150 from the Kentucky Division of Waste Management. Crumb rubber is recycled rubber from automotive and truck scrap tires. During the recycling process, steel and fluff are removed, leaving tire rubber with a granular consistency. The Jessamine County Fiscal Court will use the environmentally friendly material to resurface the playground at the Nicholasville-Jessamine City-County Park.
