It was announced at Monday’s regularly scheduled meeting of the Campbellsville City Council that Campbellsville’s old police station on Terri Street still be used after some cosmetic changes.

The building will be used as a one-stop shop for such things as planning, zoning, engineering and code enforcements.

“Hopefully this will help folks for having to run all over town to get things done,” Mayor Tony Young said.

The police station moved to 132 South Central Ave. in June.

Also at Monday’s meeting:

• Approval of minutes from October and city and water company financial reports were also approved.

• The second and final reading of the ordinance relating to the creation of a non-exclusive franchise to use the right of way for the operation and maintenance of a telecommunications system with Duo County Telecom of Jamestown.

The four representatives present explained that the agreement was mainly for fiber optics and broadband internet for the business community and there was no plan for cable video at this time.

• Also approved was a zone change for property owned by Kenny and Susan J. Phillips at 1800 New Lebanon Road to switch from B-4 (highway business district) to R-1 Ag (agriculture district).

• The next scheduled meeting of the Campbellsville City Council will be Monday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Campbellsville Civic Center. After the meeting, the Hiestand House Board Members have invited Council Members to a reception at the new Taylor Regional Archive Center (TRAC), which is near the Hiestand House on Hodgenville Road.
