Tourist Commission approves restaurant delivery program

During a special meeting Monday, the Woodford County Tourist Commission voted unanimously to partner with a local tour company to deliver meals for three restaurants hurt by Gov. Andy Beshear’s ban on in-person dining. The vote came a week after the Versailles City Council held a special meeting in which the council passed several municipal orders designed to help restaurants within the city. Among them was an agreement to pay the Tourist Commission to set up what commission Chair Maria Bohanan said was a pilot program to offer delivery services for Ricardo’s, the Versailles Brewing Company and Taqueria Becerra. The commission will pay an undisclosed flat fee to Stone Fences to deliver the meals Wednesday through Sunday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Commission member Elisha Holt asked about the parameters for success. Bohanan said after a week to 10 days, she’d meet with the restaurant owners and Jerry Daniels, the owner of Stone Fences, to see how the program was going, and that more restaurants could be added. Another motion to allow the commission to purchase thermal bags to keep meals warm or cold during delivery passed unanimously. In a reference to commission member Aaron Smither’s Jimmy John’s restaurant, Bohanan joked the the deliveries won’t have to be “freaky fast.”
