Commission ends Handy House era

Becky Barnes,

After wrestling with the issue for years, a unanimous vote by the Cynthiana City Commission Tuesday gave consent for the demise of the Handy House.
Commissioners were hopeful that the old home that looks over Flat Run Veterans’ Park could be used as housing quarters for firefighters and that bays would be added to both sides for trucks.
However, Chief Jay Sanders and Commissioner Roger Slade explained that the house could not be used for a new fire house.
