The Barren County Fiscal Court had a very brief meeting Tuesday night to mostly take care of housekeeping items.
The fiscal court approved on second reading Ordinance 526, which was an amendment to Ordinance 371 regarding county recreation board members. As previously discussed in the Oct. 2 meeting of the fiscal court, there have been problems with attendance among recreation board members. Ordinance 526 allows Judge-Executive Davie Greer to remove people from the board if they miss three consecutive meetings.
“It’s really important that we have these meetings at least once every other month,” Greer said.
Greer encouraged the public to make recommendations of anyone who would be interested in serving on the board.
Davie also announced that the county recently received its audit for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2011, which was done by Peercy and Gray, PSC. Greer described the audit as “good,” and the audit document said no significant deficiencies or instances of noncompliance were reported.
County Clerk Joanne London reported that absentee voting began on Tuesday and more than 50 people voted at the clerk’s office. That was a higher number than any recent election, London said.
