Update: Adair Co. Economic Development Authority

"If there's anything that all elected officials should be together on, it is economic development. Why? Because businesses, especially industrial businesses, bring a tremendous increase in property value. That equates to greater property tax revenue, which all taxing jurisdictions will benefit from. The following letter was delivered on EDA letterhead to both the Mayor's and Judge's offices, with individual copies provided for all council members and magistrates." - Heather Spoon

Not So Fast, KY: speed enforcement campaign through July 31

From Erin G. Eggen

Frankfort, KY - As travel increases this summer, Kentuckians are reminded to slow down and pay attention to posted speed limits to keep all road users safe.
