Adair County Fiscal Court Meeting Report, Feb. 14, 2012
In last night's action:
By Ed Waggener
The Adair County Fiscal Court fully funded Little League Baseball requests for softball and baseball, but cut funding to the Columbia/Adair County Chamber of Commerce to $5,000 for the year, the amount CJE Ann Melton recommended for the organization. The amount is down from earlier funding of $10,000 per year, but matches the amount now paid by the City of Columbia. The Chamber had requested $10,000.
The Court tabled two first readings, one for a nuisance ordinance and the other for rules for inclusion/extensions for County Road Maintenance, but okayed second readings on an update to the Adair County Road Department Policy and Procedures and updates to the Adair County Search and Rescue Teams bylaws, rules and regulations.
The actions were taken in a quick paced, meeting over in 1 hour and 11 minutes. CJE Ann Melton presided with all 7 members of the Court, Harold Burton (1), Daryl Flatt (2) Sammy Baker (3), Perry Reeder (4), Billy Dean Coffey (5), Joe Rogers (6), and Billy Rowe present.
County Treasurer Barry Corbin reports $1,392,178.78 reconciled treasury balance
County Treasurer Barry Corbin's report was unanimously approved. Mr. Corbin reported $1,392,178.78 total in all funds reconciled on January 31, 2012. The treasurer asked for and received pre-approval to make necessary budget transfers which might arise in the next month.
Treasury bolstered by excess fees from Sheriff, County Clerk's office
County Sheriff Harrison Moss reported a return in excess fees for 2011 of $24,939.84 for 2011, which is included in the recoonciled balance above. County Judge Ann Melton reported that $150,000 in excess funds had been paid by County Clerk Sheila Blair, and that $15,869.15 more would be forthcoming after a refund from the IRS is returned to the office. The sheriff's and clerk's fee settlements were unanimously approved.
Appointment, re-appointments made to the Columbia/Adair Co.Economic Development Authority
The Court approved two reappointments for four year terms on the Columbia/Adair County Economic Development Board. In separate actions, they unanimously approved new terms for Doug McCammish and Kay Bowman, and a new appointment, Randy Burns, to replace Dr. Roger Drake, who resigned. The appointments require joint approval of the City of Columbia and Fiscal Court. Approval for the appointments from City Council came in its February meeting.
Court approves new Green River Animal Shelter employee
The court approved a recommendation of CJE Ann Melton to hire Keith W. Young of Pelham Branch Road as a part time Green River Animal Shelter employee at $7.75 per hour. He replaces Garrett Luttrell, who resigned. The vote to hire was unanimous.
Court approves sale of Mack Trucks, purchase of new ones
The court unanimously approved the sale of two 2012 model Mack Tri-Axle Dump Trucks at a sale on March 14, 2012 in Alabama. The trucks are to be delivered on March 9, 2012. The program through Worldwide Equipment, Inc., and financed through the Kentucky Association of Counties on a lease/sale financing program, allows the county to keep virtually new dump trucks in service at a relative low price. The court unanimously approved the purchase of two new Mack Tri-Axle Trucks for $117, 674. each with Dump Bed, Third Axel, Pintle Hook and air lines. The Pintle Hook and air lines are for towing trailers.
