Property in Evarts added to Veterans Park

Harlan County Judge-Executive Dan Mosley and District 2 Magistrate Bill Moore transferred a piece of property owned by the Harlan County Fiscal Court to the City of Evarts and Mayor Eddie Manning on Tuesday.

According to a Facebook post from Mosley, the property will be used to expand on the current Veterans Park in Evarts. There will be additional monuments added to the site as a way to honor those who have served in the armed forces.

“We’d like to thank the volunteers who are working on this project, along with the City of Evarts for honoring our men and women who serve and have served in the armed forces,” Mosley said. “The Harlan County Fiscal Court is proud to collaborate with the City of Evarts and the volunteers on a project as meaningful as this one.”
