Adair County Fiscal Court recap July 13, 2021
By Gale B. Cowan
Adair County Judge Executive
The Adair County Fiscal Court met in regular session Tuesday night. It felt like we returned Home as we had our first meeting back at the Adair County Annex Building in over a year.
We began our meeting as we always do with the Pledge to the American Flag. We were honored to have Jayden Campbell with Boy Scout Troop #185 to lead this for us.
The court approved for Judge Cowan to sign a Cooperative Agreement to participate in the Safety Circuit Rider Program. The technology Transfer Program of the Kentucky Transportation Center, University of Kentucky, provides the Safety Circuit Rider Program for the benefit of Kentucky Local governments.
The mission of this program is to reduce crashes on rural, low volume roadways by providing information and technical assistance in the areas of roadway departures, intersection safety, and pedestrian safety.
The Court also approved first reading to amend an ordinance that will update the booking fees and per diem fees at the jail. When Jailer Richard took over he began checking with other counties and we were the lowest around. By raising these fees, we are hoping this will cut down on the amount of tax dollars that will be put into the jail budget.
Two Appointments to the Ambulance District Board:
1) Darryl McGaha was appointed to a four year term. Darryl will be replacing Dr. Robert Beshear who passed away earlier this year. His term would have been up this month.
2) Re-appointed Doug Sapp for another four year term.
Formed a Committee to look into ways to use the ARPA (Federal Funding) Dollars allocated from the US Treasurer in Washington. The Court passed two resolutions that pertain to the ARPA money. The first was to purchase computer equipment for the Sheriff's Department vehicles. The second is for upgrades to the Jim Blair Park in the form of a Inclusive Playground. The next expense I want to look at is Premium Pay for our employees. This is an allowable expense for these funds but there are several guidelines that have to be met. This will be something the committee will be discussing.
The fiscal court also approved a security light to be placed close to the new basketball courts at the Jim Blair Center. This will allow for our courts to be utilized after dark.
