WEBSTER COUNTY, KY (11/29/11) - Webster County Fiscal Court members held a very brief, 15-minute regular session Monday morning in the courthouse with no action items on the agenda.
Webster County Judge Executive Jim Townsend did present a request from C-LINK representative William ‘Shorty’ Prow asking for a contribution for an upcoming I-69 event that will be held in Frankfort. Townsend explained the organization will be hosting a reception in February for state and federal officials, including Senators and State Representatives, in hopes of progressing the I-69 project. Webster County contributed $500 last year for the same reception and Prow was asking for that donation again for the 2012 event.
“It’s very worthwhile and all of the surrounding counties donated anywhere from $500 to $2,500 for the activities,” Townsend stated.
He also noted that the Webster County Economic Development Committee had also donated $500 to the reception.
In other business, Magistrate Jerry ‘Poogy’ Brown asked if some signs concerning “littering” could be ordered and placed on several roads in his district. He also requested some ditching and culvert work on Gravel Pit Road and Charles Buchanan Road.
Magistrate Tony Felker noted that a sign was down and needed to be replaced on a curve on Old Stanhope Road.
In personnel matters, magistrates approved pay increases, based on worker evaluations at the Webster County Detention Center, for Barry Wyatt, James Taylor, Robin Wilson, Travis Miller, Layla McNeily and Don Poe.
With no other business, court members entered into executive session to discuss personnel and potential litigation. They reconvened with no action to report.
