Adair CO Fiscal Court REPORT Special Meeting June 2, 2006
No budget vote, after all. Trailer check, tax preparation check, $5,000 check to Adair County Rescue Squad, and $5,000 for dead animal removal approved. Court will meet June 5, 2006 to give first reading to cable Tv franchise. SRO.
By Ed Waggener
Fiscal Court was over almost before it began.
At the special called meeting, Friday, June 2, 2006, Judge Vaughan announced that because the budget was not advertised as required, the first reading of the 2006-2007 Adair County budget would be delayed.
However, on a 5-1 split vote, the court voted to approve the payment of the $23,053 in bills:
Magistrate Farris voted no on bills because of trailer payment
District 7 Magistrate Terry Farris was the only member to vote against the payment of the bills. Afterward, he said he voted against the payment because he was against the trailer purchase in the first place. "I think we ought to have gotten a used one. We paid almost as much for the trailer as we did for the backhoe." He said he had no objections to the fireworks payment or any of the other items.
Judge Jerry Vaughan had noted, before the vote, that the Leitchfield firm had insisted on the check before delivery of the trailer, and that caused some to grumble that maybe the county ought to cancel the order. "No," Magistrate Shelley said, "they built the trailer to order. They're a good company. We need to just go ahead."
Fiscal Court back in session for June 5, 2006 meeting
Deputy Judge Gail Cowan passed out a Public Notice, which read, "The Adair County Fiscal Court will have an emergency special called meeting on Monday, June 5, 2006, at 9:00 a.m. to have first reading of a cable t.v. franchise ordinance. The meeting is open to the public."
All Magistrates except District 2 Magistrate Wid Harris were present, as were Adair County Court Clerk Ann Melton adn Adair County Attorney Jennifer Hutchison-Jones. Because the meeting was so brief, the magistrates stood for the entire session, which lasted about five minutes.
A special PDB Meeting may wait to June 13, 2006
At 8:00am, there was still no word on whether the landowners have made a decision to accept or reject the latest offer from the Adair County Project Development Board for the Campbellsville/Merchant STs site. The deadline is 4pm today.
Judge Vaughan said that he thought that the matter would not be on the special called meeting for Monday, June 5, 2006, but would be addressed, either way, at a Tuesday, June 13, 2006 meeting. Watch CM "Events Update" for a reminder of this and other important meetings
