Gasoline prices and local taxes concern reader

When I first moved to Campbellsville in 1980, and during the next three decades, the city of Campbellsville had some of the most reasonable gasoline prices one could find in Kentucky. Compared to the national average price, our gas was always at least 15 to 20 cents per gallon cheaper. What has happened in the last couple of years?
Now, we have some of the most expensive gasoline prices in Kentucky, and in this region of the country. On several occasions recently, our gasoline prices have even exceeded the national average price per gallon.

New system would cost more, but be more accurate to reach citizens facing possible emergencies

City looks at new emergency call system

By James Roberts

Emergency weather alerts could soon be more accurate.
With the city’s contract with One Call Now set to expire in just two weeks, Ronnie Dooley, assistant E-911 coordinator and Taylor County Emergency Management public information coordinator, has suggested the city switch to a new service — CodeRED.

Dooley and CodeRED representative Kurt Steier attended Tuesday night’s Campbellsville City Council meeting to discuss the service.
The city contracted with One Call Now four years ago at a cost of $25,000, Dooley said.
