Edmonson County Fiscal Court met today, February 13, 2023. The meeting was called to order by Judge/Executive Scott Lindsey by leading the court in the pledge of allegiance. Following this, many county department heads gave updated reports since the last fiscal court meeting three weeks ago.
After this, the court moved into business. On January 9, 2023, the court voted to open bids for a new sheriff's vehicle up to the amount of $40,000. Today, they accepted a bid in the amount of $37,000 for a 2022 Dodge Durango police pursuit vehicle.
Interim County Road Supervisor Joe Joe Montgomery informed the court that the county road paver is damaged, and either needs to be repaired or replaced. It was his recommendation that they pay to repair the paver rather than buy a new one. After some discussion, all of the magistrates were in agreement and voted to have the paver repaired.
Lisa Whobrey, with Edmonson County Schools Community Ed, spoke to the court about the purpose of the Family Resource-Youth Services Center. Earlier in the week, a declaration was signed proclaiming FRYSC Week in Edmonson County.
There were no further major discussions; however, magistrates then voted to:
The court went into closed session after normal business for a personnel matter.
