KSP HOLIDAY TRAFFIC SAFETY CHECKPOINTS

 

The Kentucky State Police would like to remind drivers who travel our roadways. Their agency strives daily to ensure the safety of the motoring public. Some of these proactive measures include various traffic safety checkpoints and saturating known problematic areas through general patrol tactics.


Troopers will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the Christmas and New Year Holiday period to check motorists for compliance with motor vehicle laws including driving under the influence statutes. KSP utilizes traffic safety checkpoints to promote safety for motorists using the public roadways and to provide a deterrent for those who violate laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes. The intent of a traffic safety checkpoint is to provide for a high visibility, public safety service, focusing on vehicular equipment deficiencies, confirming appropriate registration and insurance of vehicles, and the valid licensing of drivers.  Violations of law or other public safety issues that arise shall be addressed.


Traffic safety checkpoints will allow the Kentucky State Police the opportunity to periodically concentrate its efforts in checking for violations of Kentucky traffic and regulatory laws that will ultimately increase the safety of the citizens within the Commonwealth.  Drivers encountering a traffic safety checkpoint are requested to have their operator’s license, vehicle registration receipt and proof of insurance readily accessible.  Drivers with this information in hand, those with no violations of law and minimal roadway congestion can reasonably expect to be delayed for no more than 30 seconds to a few minutes.


These locations can be found on our website, www.kentuckystatepolice.gov

LIBERTY CITY COUNCIL MEETING REPORT

 

The Liberty City Council met in regular session last night.

 

The main item on the agenda was Garbage service in the city.  Last month, the Council voted to keep the garbage as a service of the city. With both garbage trucks experiencing malfuntions recently, there has been interruptions in garbage pick-up. Last week, a special called meeting was held to re-evaluate that decision. Last night at City Hall, there was a small group of concerned citizens on hand, as well as representatives from Rumpke Sanitation. Mayor Steven Brown...

 

 

A motion was made by Councilman Andy Lawhorn to award the garbage service bid to Rumke Sanitation, that motion was 2nd'd by Councilman Brian Beeler. The motion carried by a vote of 5-1 with Councilman Larry Bowmer voting against.

 

Rumpke Sanitation will take over garbage collection in the city starting the first of February, 2020.

 

The Council also considered a Property Maintenance Code for the City of Liberty. A second reading of that Code will likely be on the agenda for the next meeting.

LIBERTY CITY COUNCIL ADDRESSES GARBAGE PROBLEMS

 

The Liberty City Council met in a special called session Tuesday to discuss garbage collection.

 

The City's newest garbage truck has been out of service, the older back-up unit has also suffered a break-down, forcing them to rent a truck.

 

Councilman Micah Meece asked Mayor Steven Brown for an update...

 

 

Councilman Meece made a motion to re-visit the bid from Rumke Sanitation to take over garbage service, however, the Council may have to re-start the process by advertising for bids again.

 

Some local citizens and business owners were present at yesterday's meeting and voiced their concerns about rates and service policies of a private company.

 

The motion was tabled until the next meeting, when the City's attorney could be present. That meeting is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 9th.
