After the meeting, Clerk Greer said that she is happy that the General Assembly made changes in Local Option elections to allow them to be held on regular voting days. She plans to update the public on it through local media. For Adair County, the change will mean a savings of around $15,000 per election. Gov. Matthew Bevin has since signed the order. - EW

Adair County Fiscal Court Big Picture: Million watt smile



2017-04-13 - Basement, Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, Columbiamagazine.com.
Whether if things are going well or not - Adair County 6th District Magistrate Greg Caldwell can be depended on to brighten the day. Things were going well for him Tuesday evening at the 11 Apr 2017 regular session of Fiscal Court. All the measures he supported were passed, and he gave a "Way" report on a "No Way" situation in his district: He reported that improvements to Bunnell Road, heretofore hangfire because Darrell Bunnell's farm, for which taxes are paid in Adair County, is accessed through Taylor County. Magistrate Caldwell worked with Taylor County Judge Eddie Rogers on an interlocal agreement which will allow the Adair County Road Department to improve the very important farm-to-Farmers Market on the Square-and other farmers market venues, solving a no-man's-land dilemma for a pioneering farm operation. Mr. Bunnell's Coview Farm, is located in the Coburg area of Adair County. The court authorized CJE Mike Stephens to sign paperwork for bringing all of Bunnell Road to be under Adair County maintenance as soon as Taylor County Fiscal authorizes. All magistrates voted for the measure. - EW

Adair County Fiscal Court Big Picture: Shortest tenure ever?



2017-04-13 - Basement, Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, Columbiamagazine.com(c) ,.
One for the World Record Book of Guinnesses, borrowing on the wisdom of Columbia's great mayor, the late Coy "Squaredeal" Downey, it seems entirely likely that Tom Brock has set record for the shortest tenure in Adair County history. Early in the 11 Apr 2017 session of Adair Fiscal Court, the legislative body appointed ordained the official Adair County Ticket-Taker-Upper for supplies from the blacktop plant, in order to properly assign the charges to each Magisterial District. Less than an hour later, the order was protested by County Road Foreman Terry Corbin, who found the court's micro-management went too far. Corbin protested that Tom Brock was far too important and too busy too much to be saddled with the clerical shore, and asked that he be given authority to assign the duty to most suitable person at any time. The court listened, made necessary legislative changes, stripping Mr. Brock of his unwanted and unsought title of Ticket-Taker-Upper. Tom Brock is profiled in front of Road Foreman Terry Corbin. - EW
