A need for more space and a central location have prompted officials from the La Grange Utilities Commission to find a new location. 

Director John Bennett said the commission plans to purchase a building on Ky. 146 – the old Ace Hardware building in La Grange. He said he hopes the moving process will be complete by the end of the year. 

The commission just completed their first phase of an expansion of their treatment plant on New Moody Lane. The next phase involves tearing down three storage buildings, so the commission will lose some of their storage space, he said.

LUC’s 3,200 water and 2,600 sewer customers won’t see any changes from the move, except the address where they send payments. 

The cost for the building was $550,000 and Bennett said it is a permanent location that he hopes will be more convenient for customers to access.
