Darren Doyle, story:
You've likely heard the phrase "no news is good news," unless you're actually in the news business. That's when things can be a little slow, however, today's Edmonson County Fiscal Court meeting was rather uneventful, with basically no discussions taking place between magistrates and the judge/executive.
Standard reports were given from county offices, including the Road Department, Emergency Management, Sheriff, Jailer, County Attorney, County Clerk, Parks and Rec, and Tourism, all of which were concluded in a few minutes.
Judge/Executive Scott Lindsey welcomed the Edmonson County Middle School student council, who attended the meeting as a field trip with Principal Brandon Prunty and teacher Andrea Webb, and invited student Tucker Brantley to lead the meeting in the Pledge of Allegiance.
From there, the court quickly moved down the agenda list with standard motions and voting with little or no discussion.
Judge Lindsey did note the passing of longtime Edmonson County Homemaker member Susie Vincent, who passed away suddenly over the weekend. She was also a staff member at Kyrock Elementary for a lengthy period, and she volunteered in a number of ways throughout the community for many years. She was a member of the Edmonson County Extension Board at the time of her passing, which prompted the court to appoint a member in her absence.
Scott Childress, local treasurer of the Edmonson County Cattlemen's Association was appointed to the board by the court.
The court also voted to:
The next Edmonson County Fiscal Court meeting is scheduled for November, 13, 2023.
