Plans to build a new water tower are temporarily on hold.
During Campbellsville City Council's regular meeting Monday, Mayor Tony Young told Council members that the city will not receive the $1 million state Community Development Block Grant it had applied for. And the reason why left Young and a few council members upset.
"[Department for Local Government Commissioner Tony Wilder] told me we're not going to get it. He said our water rates were too low," Young said.
