FC EHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (9/10/19) — Hopkins Fiscal Court approved an ordinance today related to county property tax, which remains mostly unchanged from the prior year.

The county government will levy 14.50 cents per $100 assessed value on real estate, according to the ordinance. Tangible/personal property is listed at 20.12 cents, compared to last year’s assessment of 22.38 cents per $100 value.

Motor vehicles and watercraft will be levied 10.30 cents per $100 value, which is the same tax assessment listed last year. Residents can expect to receive their 2019 property tax bills in the mail next month.

The county approved Magistrate Bill Rudd’s request to hire Ken Todd as public works director. Ken Boucherie, who previously served in the position, accepted another job at Road Builders. Todd moves into the role after serving as a Madisonville maintenance department supervisor. He also worked 18 years as fleet manager for Goldenrod.

In other business, the court approved a pauper burial and a $10,465 bid from Manicode to catalogue all the county ordinances.

Judge-Executive Jack Whitfield proclaimed Friday-Saturday as Nebo Fall Festival and BBQ Days, Friday as Relay for Life Day and Sept. 17-25 as Constitution Week.

Whitfield recognized Deputy Kelley Rager Sawyer for five years of service, Michelle Hayes for 10 years as deputy jailer, Brooke Holt for 5 years as deputy jail clerk and EMA Director Nick Bailey for 10 years.
