A resolution was passed to build a highway between Scott and Bourbon counties, and several firefighters were honored at the Scott County Fiscal Court meeting Thursday.

The magistrates passed a resolution to partner with Bourbon County to build a connection on highway U.S. 460 between Scott County and Bourbon County. The court agreed to match funds not exceeding $1 million.

Scott County Judge-Executive Joe Pat Covington issued three proclamations to honor three Scott County firefighters for their service to the community. The honored firefighters were John Scott, Joseph Bryan Perry and William Kevin Whitlock. The three men were present at the meeting to accept the honors.

The magistrates confirmed the appointment of Kimberly Hay to the Library Board and the hire of two new part-time employees to the jail.

The court also passed resolutions to purchase road salt and tack.

Human Resource Director Jeff Mudrack presented his progress on a study to evaluate county employee’s wages compared to the market medians. He plans to review internal equity and recommend pay changes accordingly.

Covington gave an update on Great Crossings Park. The project is making progress and is looking nice, he said.

Covington reminded the community the public hearing about the solid waste management plan is at 6 p.m. on May 30, in the Scott County High School Auditorium.

The county has received three bids to take the waste, which are currently being reviewed, he said.
