Three historic store front properties on Pike and Walnut streets are getting long overdue facelifts thanks to a new owner, Mike Sosbe, who declared that the properties have stood vacant for far too long.
Sosbe, owner of Mike Sosbe Construction, is one of the new people who are working to improve the economic viability of Cynthiana’s historic commercial district.

Of the ten vehicles in the law enforcement fleet of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, six are in such poor condition that they present a serious hazard to the department’s deputies, said Sheriff Shain Stephens.
In a ruling last Friday, the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) granted the R.A. Williams Construction company’s request to abandon the package sewer treatment plant serving the Cedarbrook neighborhood in southern Harrison County effective April 30.
