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.

KY OFFICE OF HIGHWAY SAFETY: OPERATION CRASH REDUCTION RUNS THROUGH MONDAY (COLUMBUS DAY)

 

To help drivers and passengers remember the importance of seat belt use and other safe driving practices, Kentucky is promoting Operation Crash Reduction (OCR).

 

The operation runs from Oct. 9 through Oct. 12 with a goal of saving lives and preventing injuries due to traffic crashes. During this time, law enforcement will conduct a high-visibility enforcement campaign, with an emphasis on seat belt use.

 

“As a driver, you’re not alone on the road, so you can’t prevent every possible collision. But you can ensure that every time you get in the car, you are as safe as possible if a crash happens,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. “Put your phone down and buckle up.”

 

The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS), state and local law enforcement and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are teaming up to support the operation.

 

“While we always encourage safe driving practices, this specialized campaign focuses on the importance of buckling up,” said KOHS Acting Executive Director Jason Siwula. “If you are involved in a crash, a properly fastened child seat and seat belt provides the best defense against injury or death.”

 

OCR is focused on NHTSA Region 3, which comprises Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia — a region that sees some of the nation’s highest numbers of traffic deaths.

 

According to NHTSA, in each year from 2014 to 2018, this specific set of states had 882 fatal crashes from Oct. 1-15. This is the highest number of fatal crashes for the first 15 days of any month during this same time period. In fact, from 2014 to 2018, October was the most likely month for fatal crashes to occur in these states, with 1,772 total fatal crashes. In these fatal crashes, more than 45 percent of occupant deaths in passenger vehicles, trucks and buses were unrestrained. During that same period in these states, more fatal crashes occurred on the long holiday weekend (257) than during the holiday periods of Thanksgiving or Memorial Day. This holiday period was the most dangerous of 2018 for these states, with 52 fatal crashes.

 

“For several years now, we have had this troubling trend in this East Coast region,” said NHTSA Regional Administrator Stephanie Hancock. “We know that speed, distraction and impairment are the root causes of most of the crashes in these states. However, seat belt and child safety seat use are your primary sources of protection in crashes caused by a speeding, impaired or distracted driver.” 

 

Last year there were 345 injuries and seven deaths on Kentucky roadways during the Oct. 11-14 holiday weekend. “That is why we are working with NHTSA and our state and local law enforcement partners to encourage motorists buckle up and put the phone down,” said Siwula.

 

According to NHTSA, when worn correctly, seat belts reduce the risk of fatalities by 45 percent for front-seat vehicle occupants and by 60 percent for pickup truck, SUV and minivan occupants.

“Seat belts save lives,” said Hancock.  “Everyone — front seat and back, child and adult — should remember to buckle up.”

 

For more information, please visit https://www.facebook.com/kyhighwaysafety/ and www.kyhighwaysafety.com.

 

Due to COVID-19, NHTSA’s distracted driving effort was moved from April to October, and therefore runs concurrently with OCR.  View Kentucky’s Buckle Up Phone Down distracted driving press release here.

KSP INVESTIGATE FATAL CRASH IN WAYNE COUNTY

 

The Kentucky State Police, London Post responded to a two vehicle collision that occurred on KY 90 in Wayne County on Wednesday October 7, 2020 at approximately 2:56 PM.

 

The initial investigation indicates that a 2014 Nissan passenger vehicle, operated by Scottie R. Piercy, 39 years old of Monticello, KY and his passenger Janet E. Piercy, 37 years old of Monticello, KY. collided with a 2018 Dodge Ram pickup operated by John T. Brown, 33 years old of Monticello, KY. Mr. Brown was transported by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with life threatening injuries. As a result of the collision and his injuries Mr. Piercy was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Wayne County Coroner’s Office. Mrs. Piercy was transported by PHI-7 Air Evac to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

 

The State Police is looking into the possibilities that drug and alcohol are factors in the collision. Toxicology was performed on both operators involved in the collision and an autopsy is pending on Mr. Piercy. The Kentucky State Police will release more information as it becomes available.

 

KSP Post 11, Tpr. Dackery Larkey is continuing the investigation. He was assisted at the scene by Post 11 Personnel, The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Wayne County Constable, Susie Fire Department, Monticello Fire Department, Wayne County EMS, PHI-7 Air Evac, Air Methods Flight and the Wayne County Coroner’s office.
