BARREN FISCAL COURT MEETS LAST NIGHT PDF Print
Wednesday, 19 February 2014 08:40

According to Barren County Magistrate Dr. Chris Steward, the Cave City Council has voted unanimously to disallow payment of over $20,000 to the Barren County Fiscal Court for use of the storm shelters that were built in the city.  Steward said that Cave City government officials felt that due to certain issues involving flooding within the structures, that payment was not warranted.  Based on the advice from Cave City Attorney, Bobby Richardson, Steward handed out packets to all magistrates with the detailed complaints from Cave City.  A meeting is set for 4:00pm before the next Barren County Fiscal Court meeting to review the issue.

 

In other County Government actions last night, approval was given for another year of usage of the Court House lawn for the Bounty of The Barrens Farmers Market.  Sustainable Glasgow Representative, Billy Ray, presented the request.

 

Also, open bids were read on the purchase of four new bush hogs for the county road department.  The county voted to accept the lesser bid of Wright Implement.  Also, the fiscal court approved a purchase order to replace a 2004 pickup truck that was stolen, recovered, and later deemed totaled by the insurance company, to be replaced by a 2007 model from Leachman Automotive Group in Bowling Green.  All but Magistrate John Benningfield voted in favor of the purchase order.  While Road Department Supervisor Johnny Kinslow claimed that no similar or equal vehicle could be found locally, Benningfield expressed that he would vote “no” because he felt the purchase should be made locally.
