WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (4/15/13) - The Dixon Commission met in a special called session on May 6, 2013 due to a training conflict on their normal meeting date.
During the meeting Mayor Linda Frederick reported that she had spoken with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) about drainage problems on State Route 132 West.
She said that KYTC Superintendent Tim Chandler reported that he had taken a look at the location, and he felt it was more of a city problem than a state one. The problem seemed to stem from the fact that property owners had been filling in ditches that were designed to carry water away from the roadway.
At this time it appears that the project will cost more than the City is in a position to spend.
An open session for public requests for LGEA and Street Funds was held, but no requests were recorded.
Mayor Frederick reported that the Dixon Beautification Committee had begun planting roses and has other projects in mind for this summer. In addition, an anonymous donor gave $100 to be used for fuel costs if Dixon decides to take on a sidewalk repair project.
The commission voted to appoint Wally Owen to fill a vacancy on the Ethics Board.
