UPDATE: Valley View Ferry Back In Operation
The ‘John Craig II’ was delivered to the Clays Ferry boat ramp and attached to the car barge, according to officials.
A $600,000 grant from the Ferry Boat Discretionary Funds helped pay for the new tow boat, according to officials.
The Valley View Ferry Authority said Fayette, Jessamine and Madison counties each chipped-in $25,000 toward the purchase of the boat.
An additional $25,000 came from the sale of the ferry’s old tow boat.
