The City of Morehead is set to receive $1.9-million in funding from the American Rescue Plan Act.

Governor Andy Beshear announced $157-million in funds were being given to city governments across the commonwealth late last month.  They are being distributed by the Department for Local Government.

Mayor Laura White-Brown discussed the matter during the regular monthly meeting of Morehead City Council last night, saying she recently sent out a memo to department heads seeking feedback.

The City of Lakeview Heights is also listed to receive funds.  That municipality will receive a little over $37-thousand.
