Madisonville Council Makes Agreement with Dawson Springs

city madisonville2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/18/13) – The Madisonville City Council approved the mayor signing an interlocal agreement with Dawson Springs to share personnel costs with Dawson Springs in joining with a countywide dispatch during its regularly scheduled meeting Monday, Sept. 16.
 
The authorization stemmed from an agreement garnered from meetings between the 911 Advisory Council and Dawson Springs city officials.
 
Dawson Springs currently has its own separate dispatch station. Joining with the Central Dispatch will bring the whole county under the same umbrella opening up the door for more grants.
 
Hopkins County Fiscal Court has agreed to support the relocation of Central Dispatch, which currently operates out of a 300-square-foot facility inside the Madisonville Municipal Building, to the ground level of the Hopkins County Courthouse, which would be an approximate 1,200 square feet.
 
Fiscal Court stopped short of approving an interlocal agreement with the city of Madisonville during its meeting Tuesday, Sept. 17. It did agree to show support of the move and spending $150,000 in the 911 Fund for renovating the courthouse space from a grant.
 
Earlington received a grant for upgrades for dispatching, but the 300-square-foot Central Dispatch space cannot accommodate any new equipment.
 
In other business, City Council approved the city's tax rate for real property at 12.2 cents per hundred dollars of assessed value; motor vehicles and watercraft at 15 cents; and tangible property to 2035 cents.
