Magistrate Harold Burton: Helping out in Fire Jurisdiction case

2014-04-09 - Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Magistrate Harold Burton (District 1) volunteered to join Adair County Judge Ann Melton and Magistrate Billy Rowe (District 7) and attend a meeting of the Adair County Fire Department District Chiefs about a problem David Bledsoe and several families on Gentry Mill Road have related to Fire Department Jurisdictions. The homeowners are 4 miles from the Fire Department in Russell Springs, 10 miles from Columbia. Because of that, response times would ordinarily be greater from Columbia, but the homeowners, Judge Ann Melton told the court, face higher insurance premiums which would be lowered if they re served by Russell Springs. Judge Melton said that in her initial contact with the Adair County Fire Chiefs, they were reluctant to alter boundaries because requests for changes would be unending. She and the magistrates want to see if a solution for the homeowners might be found. The meeting is set for 7pmCT, May 7, 2014, the first Wednesday in the month.
