Darren Doyle, story:
The Edmonson County Fiscal Court approved the County Clerk Excess Fee Report of 2019 Revenue Supplement Fund which was around $66,000, all of which will be turned over to the county to be used as the fiscal court chooses.
Alexander said that the funds are received through his office from the state and that Edmonson County receives it because it has a population of less than 20,000. Since Alexander has been the County Clerk, more than $300,000 in excess fees have been turned over to the county.
"If not for the funding that Kevin has turned over to the fiscal court, the county would have really struggled with maintenance and repairs for Parks and Rec and the courthouse," said Judge Executive Wil Cannon. "Nothing was ever turned over to the county from the county clerk's office until Kevin took office."
Out of the excess fee money that comes from the state, Alexander said he has used very little of the money in the past, but has used it on upgrading the office server to be more efficient for customers and an for an upgrade to the shelving system where records are kept inside the clerk's office.
