Louisa, KY -- The Lawrence County Fiscal Court met Monday, August 18, at 9:30 am at the Lawrence County Courthouse in downtown Louisa. After the opening prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance, the meeting was called to order by County Judge Executive, John Osborne.
Minutes from the July 21st meeting were approved as was the reading of Budget Amendment #1. Money is expected to be left over in the current budget and must be adopted as an Amendment.
The regular monthly bills were approved. The next item on the agenda was Supplemental Agreement #1 and Resolution, which adopts the execution of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Lawrence County. This agreement, which means money for roads, is in the amount of $50,000.
The Second Reading of the Electrical Inspector Fee Ordinance was approved. The First Reading was done at last month's meeting, which the fee for electrical inspections was discussed. "It's basically $75 each time they come out to inspect," said Osborne, stating that it's less than most rates in other areas.
Seasonal employee, Johnny McKenzie, who works at the County Garage, was moved from seasonal status to a full time employee.
A request was submitted for a speed limit to be set for Riverbend Drive, which is the connector road between the Food City Plaza and Rt. 23, at the Judicial Center. The road was recently paved and Osborne said there have been reports of excessive speed since then. A motion was made that a speed limit of 25 MPH be set for Riverbend Drive. The motion was seconded and passed.
County Clerk, Chris Jobe was authorized to advertise bids for surplus property. Three bids were awarded on previously advertised property; two to Lynn Spillman for a 2000 Ford 150 truck and a 2003 Ford Explore.
Herbie Parks was awarded the bid on a 2001 Ford 250 truck.
Bids were also awarded on two county bridges; one on Apple Road, and the other on Hay Branch, both on Rt. 1760.
A date for the special Fiscal Court meeting could not be set until the Lawrence county Board of Education holds it's meeting in which the 2014-15 tax rates will be discussed.
There were no public comments and the meeting was adjourned.
The next Fiscal Court meeting will be held Monday, September 15, at 9:30 at the Lawrence County Courthouse.
