$16.5 million to build TES


The new Taylorsville Elementary School now has a builder.

Louisville-based Morel Construction Co. LLC got the official nod from the Spencer County Board of Education Monday at the board’s monthly meeting at Spencer County High School.

“We’re on our way, folks,” board chair Debbie Herndon said after the board passed a motion approving the general contractor.

“The time has come,” superintendent Chuck Adams said.
