CASEY COUNTY FISCAL COURT REPORT

 

Casey County Fiscal Court met in regular session Monday.

 

The magistrates accepted a first reading of an ordinance concerning fees for the Judicial Center.

 

Two new members were appointed to the Casey County Extension Board, one due to a resignation and another board member’s term was expiring. The two new members are Greg Goode and Katie Coffee.

 

Under general business, the magistrates approved authorization for Judge Executive Randy Dial to sign a participation agreement with AT&T and begin installation for the new phone system at 911 center.

 

Under road business, the court voted to purchase four new salt spreaders from Stapp’s in Russell Springs. The court had advertised for bids on snow plows and received one bid from International Spreaders. The court voted to reject that bid so that Judge Dial can negotiate on the price.

 

The court went into executive session for about 40 minutes with no action taken.

 

The court voted to hire Andrew Luttrell at the Road Dept. on an as-needed temporary 90 day period.

 

It’s time to update and verify our county roads for the state road maps. Judge Dial suggested that we also use this time to prepare a new County road map. The last time that was done was 2002.

 

Under 911 business, the court voted to authorize Judge Dial to update our 911 radio and tower licenses through the FCC and FAA.

 

There are supplemental grants available for local fire and rescue. Judge Executive, Randy Dial…

 

 

Casey County Sheriff Chad Weddle gave his departments’ monthly report…

 

 

Judge Dial also confirmed trick-or-treating hours in the county…

 

 

The next regular meeting of the Casey Co. Fiscal Court will be Nov. 16th.
