Owensboro Commissioners Recognize Football League, Discuss OMU Financial Report

Owensboro Seal 01 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/7/13) -- The Owensboro Daviess County Youth Football League was honored Tuesday for their 40 years of serving the area. The league was started in 1972 and has now become one of the largest leagues in the country with 1,000 football players and cheerleaders signing up each year. Robert Bradfield, director who has been involved in the league for 36 years, accepted the award on behalf of the organization.
 
“It wasn’t just me, I had great help around me,” Bradfield said.
 
Also during the meeting, Owensboro Municipal Utilities gave an update on the numbers for the 2013 fiscal year ending May 13. The company had a net income in 2013 of $5.5 million and as there were more rate increases, that reportedly puts OMU in a positive net income. The net income for 2014 is projected to be around $11 million. OMU has a projected budget of $143.8 million for 2014. OMU is also looking at $125 million in expenses for 2014.
 
Ordinance 30-2013, proposed at the previous meeting, was approved Tuesday. The ordinance was for the city to purchase parcels of land that were encumbered with delinquent taxes and/or nuisances to the community. Commissioners said that these properties are resalable, and can be bought out by private owners before the city purchases them.
 
Ordinance 31-2013 was proposed Tuesday, to be voted on at the next meeting. The ordinance was brought to the City by Ronald L. Sanders to close two alley right-of-ways located within Lot 2 of the J.Z. Moore Village on J.R. Miller Blvd. Businesses could be placed on the properties, in the future.
 
The City Financial Report for the month of May was discussed by the commission. General funds for Owensboro equaled $39,904,418, making the city over budget. Mayor Ron Payne is not worried, though, because the net profit for June is looking very good.
 
“Businesses are doing well in this community,” Payne said.
 
Several personnel appointments were also discussed at the meeting. Kevin L. Collignon was appointed to the position of Assistant City Engineer with Public Works Engineering Department, effective Aug. 16.
 
Edward A. Ray, Jr., was appointed to the position of Assistant City Manager/City Attorney with Administration, effective Aug. 6.
 
Casey D. Owens, was appointed to the position of Public Works Laborer/Maintenance Helper with Public Works, effective Aug. 6.
 
The next Owensboro City Commissioners Meeting will be held Aug. 20 at 5 p.m.
