Fiscal court holds short special meeting

Posted March 7, 2018 at 10:10 am

Clinton Fiscal Court held a brief call meeting Monday morning, March 5 with five of six members present and two items of business on the agenda.

The court first accepted a check in the amount of $17,500 from county clerk Sheila Booher in excess fees from her office. Booher said that represented about 90 percent of the total and approximately $1,200 more would be turned over the county at a later date.

The county clerk also explained that her office had received a sizeable “cold check” and that situation has been turned over to the County Attorney’s Office for investigation.

The court voted unanimously to accept $84,972 in discretionary road funds from the Department of Transportation and approved the roads in which the money will be used to make repairs.

They also voted to allow judge/executive Richard Armstrong, via resolution, to sign any documents necessary with the Transportation Cabinet to receive the funding.

The next regular meeting of Clinton Fiscal Court is scheduled for next Thursday, March 15 at 5 p.m. and is open to the public.
