hc fiscal3 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/25/13) – The Hopkins County Building and Grounds Committee met in special session Tuesday, Sept. 24 to discuss an interlocal agreement with the City of Madisonville regarding the development of the 911 Dispatch Center at the Hopkins County Courthouse.
 
The agreement was brought up at the last Hopkins County Fiscal Court meeting Sept. 17 but was not voted on pending further study.
 
During the Sept. 24 committee meeting, questions were answered by the interpretation of the agreement and conversation between magistrates Chris Toney and Maurice Wilson and Judge-Executive Donnie Carroll and Sheriff Frank Latham.
 
The discussion encompassed the accountability of employees by both the city and the county. Toney said his concerns were based on forming a five-year interlocal agreement and the possibility dual oversight over employees could pose a potential problem. It was determined that the agreement could be terminated by either entity with a 90-day notice.
 
It was decided that the committee would meet again at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 prior to the next Hopkins County Fiscal Court meeting at the Hopkins County Government Center on North Main Street, Madisonville.
 
The 911 Central Dispatch Committee needs the interlocal agreement to help facilitate moving on with a new 911 Dispatch Center from its current 300-square-foot office to an up-to-date and renovated 1,200-square-foot location at the courthouse.
 
Toney said if Hopkins County Attorney Todd P'Pool interprets the agreement as the committee has, he will make a motion to approve it at the next fiscal court meeting.
