hc fiscal courtMADISONVILLE, KY. (6/4/13) – The Hopkins County Fiscal Court (HCFC) held scheduled committee meetings this morning at the Government Building on Main Street.
 
The hot topic in the Building and Grounds Committee meetings for the past few months has been the establishment of the Regional Sports Complex, since receiving a long awaited building permit just this past April.
 
The committee set to open bids for the project at today’s meeting and will be advertising for that publicly within the following weeks. Pleasant Excavating submitted a bid previously to start Phase II B dirt work on the grounds, and was accepted today.
 
Bidding for the second floor renovation project at the old courthouse building has been open since March and were accepted on parts of that today as well. A bid from Prow Brothers Heating and Air Conditioning of Madisonville was accepted to complete the heating and air work on the floor.
 
The Hopkins Co. Sherriff’s Department was approved for a $16,000 grant to purchase new and advanced Taser devices for the officers.
 
In an effort to raise awareness and continue the county’s watch and prevention measures on criminal activity, Judge Executive Donald Carroll declared a Crime Stoppers Proclamation for the county to recognize the month of June as “Crime Stoppers Month.” If you have any information about or suspect criminal activity near you or someone you know, please report the activity by calling anonymously to this number: (270) 825-1111.
 
Fiscal Court GIS Coordinator, Kim Ezell updated the court that the Code Red Emergency weather alert system has been a success so far in Hopkins County with approximately 30% of the county’s residence signed up to receive the alerts. The rest of the county residences who are not enrolled in the system are encouraged to do so in order to stay updated on severe weather alerts here in the tri-state region.
