Residents also complain about neighbors' yards and garbage

Magisterial district boundaries could see a change

By Calen McKinney

Taylor County residents could see a change in which magistrate represents them next month.

Those in charge of reapportioning magisterial districts based on 2010 Census data say there will likely be some changes in the boundaries.

Magistrates discussed the reapportionment during last Tuesday's regular meeting of the Taylor Fiscal Court.

At the meeting, Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers told magistrates that the Lake Cumberland Area Development District can help the local committee with the work at a cost of $800.

Magistrates have said no to increase since March.

County workers get raise after all

By Calen McKinney

County employees will get 3 percent raises next fiscal year, though magistrates have said for the past three months that the county can't afford it.

At Tuesday night's regular Taylor Fiscal Court meeting, five of the county's six magistrates voted to give the raise.

The issue of raises has been discussed at three meetings of the Court's Budgets, Audits and Personnel Committee this year. At each, the consensus has been that the county can't afford to give raises next fiscal year.

City employee raises still in question

By James Roberts

While the futures of Rescue and E-911 are now squared away, the city still has a few budget hurdles to tackle as the new fiscal year approaches.

Employee raises and the impact of health insurance costs are still being mulled over, according to Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young.

Though the final draft of the 2011-2012 budget is still in the works, Campbellsville City Council members discussed the issue at length during Monday night's regular meeting. Young said he expected to have the budget completed and in the hands of council members by today or tomorrow.

Officials say magistrates’ flood plain ordinance doesn’t meet standards.

County ordinance ‘not good enough’

By Calen McKinney

Magistrates have given their approval to a FEMA ordinance after the one they created wasn't good enough.

Initial approval was given to the FEMA-written flood plain ordinance that contains National Flood Insurance Program standards in March, though magistrates said they had some concerns about it.

The next month, magistrates decided to create their own ordinance that contains those same minimum guidelines and gave it the required second reading for it to become legal.

City approves all but one of county’s proposed changes to Rescue agreement.

Council says no to debt

By James Roberts

Campbellsville City Council members have opted not to assume Rescue's $170,000 in debt if the service is transferred to the county.

The Council met in regular session Monday night to discuss changes made to a proposed Rescue/E-911 agreement by Taylor County Fiscal Court.

While the Council was in agreement with five of the six changes proposed by the Court, Council members made it clear that the city would not assume Rescue's debt once the operation became the county's responsibility.

'I think it comes down to trust. I don't think they trust us.'

Court tosses ball back to Council

By Calen McKinney

Magistrates have agreed to begin operating Rescue next fiscal year - but not without asking for some changes to an agreement that spells out the details.

At Tuesday night's special Taylor Fiscal Court meeting, magistrates voted 5 to 1 to enter into an agreement with the City of Campbellsville to begin operating Campbellsville/Taylor County Rescue on July 1.

Magistrate John Gaines cast the lone "no" vote.

The Campbellsville City Council approved its version of an agreement last week during a special meeting.
