    Vine Grove has found itself without a backup water source after unforeseen internal damage within its water tower delayed renovations and left it drained of water.
    But Vine Grove City Council voted unanimously this week to approve a bid from Louisville-based Caldwell Tanks to make the repairs at a cost of $134,500.
    City Clerk Cary Broussard said the city expects the work to be finished and the tower resupplied with water by Dec. 15. The tower will be painted in the spring, she said.
