LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new lease on the former Kentucky Kingdom site could be signed in weeks.
Governor Steve Beshear confirmed that news to WDRB Tuesday afternoon. The governor did not name the bidder but said there is only one.
It's believed businessman Ed Hart is the only one who filed a proposal.
"I think we are very close on a lease, and then we'll have a bidder that will be able to do the financing," says Beshear, who added that it would likely be weeks, rather than months, before the lease was signed.
The governor said the deal would require that the state is under no financial obligation.
