City votes to hire consultant

If the price is right

GLASGOW — Tompkinsville City Commissioners agreed Thursday night to hire Sean Martin with Martin Contracting of Richmond to work for the city as a consultant, if the city can afford his services.  

City officials met with Martin last week to discuss his willingness to come on board as an consultant. If hired, Martin will be helping the city’s gas department become compliant with the Kentucky Public Service Commission.

“He gave us a ballpark figure of $30,000,” said Mayor Jeff Proffitt Thursday night during the city commission meeting.

The city’s attorney, Reed Moore Jr., asked the commission to get an estimate from Martin in writing before entering into a contract with his company.

The city’s gas department became noncompliant when 14 sections of the Code of Federal Regulations were violated. The violations were discovered during a periodic inspection that occurred on Feb. 28.

Andrew Meinykovych, director of communications for the PSC, said federal regulations require the PSC to inspect gas systems once every three years.

As a result of the inspection, an Incident Investigation Report describing the inspection was submitted to the PSC from the agency’s staff, according to an order posted on the PSC’s website that lists the violations in detail.
