Where did you read that horse sh-t in the ANE.I guess you think the city prices the gas, huh? FYI, the new library is a county library, not the city! The city didn't want it there but the people that did used reasoning such as people can drop their kids off at the library to study while parents grocery shop.... Explains test scores doesn't it...lol
Furthermore, the retail is going in and apartments too! This city has never looked better and there has been more growth in the last ten years in Pikeville than most cities in the state. The census showed Pikeville was second to Louisville in growth percentage genius!
