AUDIO: Mayor Mollaun Talks "Positives" During COVID-19 Pandemic

There are some good things going on in the City of Lawrenceburg, despite the bad times we are living in.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Lawrenceburg Mayor Kelly Mollaun says there are plenty of positive things going on in the City during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Mayor Mollaun joined Eagle Country 99.3's Bubba Bo on air Monday morning. 

Among the topics were the city pool, future events, the Fiber projects, small business grants and high school graduation. 

As of right now, the city pool is not going to open. 

"What the end of May brings, we don't know yet," said Mayor Mollaun. "Stay tuned for that." 

As for future events, Mollaun said that events planned for June will go on as planned, but cautioned that those events could be postponed or cancelled based on state and federal guidelines. 

Mayor Mollaun also boasted the city's Small Business Grant program, where small businesses within the city limits are able to apply for a $3,500 grant. To date, the city has given out $248,000 in small business grants. 

"I'm so happy about this because some of these businesses may not have been able to survive because they are waiting on state or federal dollars," said Mollaun. "Please continue to support local businesses. They need it now more than ever. But even after this is lifted please make sure to support them."

Another way the city is helping out is be offering free residential utilities for the months of May and June. 

Some Lawrenceburg residents are still without fiber and that's mostly due to COVID-19 restrictions. Mayor Mollaun said that contractors are currently working to complete overhead and underground work. When restrictions are lifted, multiple crews will begin in home installations. 

Then there are high school seniors that are uncertain if they will get to experience graduation day. 

"The city wants to help to honor high school students," said Mollaun. "These kids have worked hard for 12 years and they look forward to that moment they can walk across that stage."
