Yesterday morning folks who live on Beaver Valley Road addressed the Barren County Fiscal Court, one of those being Terry Jackson:
One of the questions brought by the residents was the issue of the road. Now barely wide enough for two vehicles, the residents worry about the safety of themselves and their children and grandchildren. Judge Micheal Hale said that while there were no plans to rebuild the road prior to Southern States purchasing the land, the county would certainly have to maintain the road if they move forward with the feed mill, but the county’s only business is the road:
No one representing Southern States was at yesterday’s fiscal court meeting.
Judge Hale brought up IDEA, or the Industrial Development and Economic Authority, and says that a recent meeting with Cave City Mayor Dewayne Hatcher, Glasgow Mayor Dick Doty, IDEA Chair Owen Lambert and himself, proved to be a great step moving forward:
Magistrate Carl Dickerson, who chair’s the fiscal court’s economic development committee, along with a couple of magistrates had met with the IDEA board a couple of weeks ago and learned the work being done in the county by IDEA. Dickerson said that the group that met seems to be moving in the direction his committee had planned to go had their most recent meeting not been cancelled:
Idea has a meeting scheduled for this Friday.
