owensborologoOWENSBORO, Ky. (8/21/13) -- An ordinance was read before the commissioners, at Tuesday’s board meeting, to amend the annual budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30, 2014. This was to correct all beginning fund balances, roll over all outstanding encumbrances and capital projects, and to allocate a portion of surplus funds from the last fiscal year to go to agency funding and various operational needs. The biggest item of business in the upcoming fiscal year is receiving a state grant for street resurfacing, said Mayor Ron Payne. The city will spend $1.6 million for resurfacing projects this year.

The ordinance proposes amendments related to construction site storm water runoff control; it requires an excavation, cut, or fill permit application process for land disturbance activity.
 
An ordinance petitioned to the City by Ronald L. Sanders for the closing of two alley right-of-ways located within Lot 2 or the J.ZA. Moore Village was approved.
 
A municipal order was announced authorizing the mayor to execute a memorandum of agreement between the city of Owensboro and Daviess County to pave a portion of Pleasant Valley Rd. leading to the new Owensboro Health hospital facility. The city will reimburse the county for the cost of paving for the total amount of $9,700.
