WEBSTER COUNTY, KY (12/15/11) – In a session that lasted about an hour on Tuesday, Dec. 6, the Slaughters Commission approved a pair of motions to donate city funds in support of Slaughters Elementary and heard updates on several ongoing city projects.
The commission first heard an update from Slaughters City Attorney Mark Little regarding an amendment to the proposed cemetery perpetual fund. Little told the commission that the attorney general had requested information regarding the city’s solvency be included with the petition.
The commission also heard an update on water line upgrades along Whitsell Street and Rhonda Lane.
Slaughters Mayor Don Winstead next addressed the issue of what to do about renovating and restoring the city park, something the commission has been wrestling with for the last few years. Winstead said an agreement for a park grant had been received by the city, and that state Department of Local Government funds are now available to help address the needs of the city park. The commission discussed several options and informally agreed to finalize details of potential work in the spring.
Before adjourning, the commission approved donations of $1,000 to the Slaughters Parent-Teacher Association and $2,000 to Slaughters Elementary.
