WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (1/9/13) - The Providence City Council met Monday night with only one item on the agenda.
That was the second reading of a new city ordinance authorizing the Code Enforcement Board to hear first offense walking trail violations and levy fines of up to $100 plus the cost to repair any damages that might have been caused by the violation.
The ordinance passed unanimously.
The mentioned walking trail begins at Westerfield Park and will eventually end near Timewell on Donan Drive.
It may not be used for motorized vehicles with the exception of “scooters” or wheelchairs used by mobility challenged individuals. All traffic must also keep to the right. A first offence violation of this ordinance is punishable by a fine up to $100.
Mayor Eddie Gooch reported that the railroad track on Union Street and Clark Street have been removed and blacktopped.
Keith Ferell, one of the newly elected council members, thanked the citizens of Providence for electing him and thanked the Providence Fire Department for their help with the Toys for Tots program.
New councilman Doug Hammers reported that he had received several complaints of traffic moving too fast entering Country Club Meadows. The council agreed to have more police patrols in that area to alleviate the problem.
