Bridging Project to begin in Metcalfe County next week

A Bridging Kentucky Project will soon be underway in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 3 area. The project will rehab the bridge on KY 496 over Oil Well Branch in Metcalfe County. Scott & Murphy Inc. was awarded the contract on December 13 in the amount of $129,475.17. The contractor plans to start work on the bridge on Thursday, Jan. 24. The project will close the bridge on KY 496 over Oil Well Branch at mile point 11.2 for approximately 30 days. A signed detour utilizing KY 533 and KY 2390 will be in place. The signed detour is approximately six miles long so motorists need to allow for extra travel time. The entire project is expected to be completed by July 1. The rehab work will extend the life of the bridge 35 years.

The Bridging Kentucky Program is a transformational commitment to improve safety and soundness across the Commonwealth. KYTC will rehabilitate, repair, or replace more than 1,000 critical structures in all 120 Kentucky counties over the next six years. The program will reopen closed bridges, remove weight restrictions that prevent use by school buses, emergency vehicles and businesses, and improve access and mobility for all Kentuckians. For more about Bridging Kentucky please visit BridgingKentucky.com.

KSP Investigation Leads to Indictment in 37 year Cold Case

On Wednesday, December 12th, the Warren County Grand Jury indicted Samuel Little with one count of Murder in the death of Linda Sue Boards, whose body was discovered May 15, 1981 on a farm located in Smiths Grove. In September, Post 3 Bowling Green was contacted by KSP Investigator Carolyn Nunn, Central Forensic Laboratory, in

reference to a lead received via the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VICAP) regarding the Board murder case. VICAP is a unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that is responsible for the analysis of serial violent and sexual crimes. Nunn advised that the VICAP database identified an individual who had committed crimes in California that matched the method in which Ms. Boards was murdered. The investigation led investigators to the Texas Rangers Division, where they learned the suspect had recently been interviewed by Ranger Jim Holland, for crimes committed in Texas. In October, KSP investigators traveled to Texas to interview the suspect regarding the Kentucky case. Information obtained during the interview led to the case being presented to the Grand Jury and the subsequent indictment. Little is currently lodged at the Wise County Texas Detention Center. No further information is available for release at this time.

I-65 widening project nears completion.

With weather cooperating, projects designed to widen I-65 to six lanes will be complete by Christmas. The 91-mile stretch from the Tennessee line to Eliza­bethtown has been completed in phases over nearly two decades. Chris Jessie, public information officer for the Ken­tucky Transportation Cabinet’s district highway office in Elizabethtown, said a segment from Smith’s Grove to Exit 28 near the Corvette Assembly Plant was first because of needed improvements in a high-crash area. About 15 years ago, widening work started near Franklin at the state line and has been progressively moving north. The final project is the 10-mile route from Sonora to Elizabethtown’s

southern exit. Jessie also says some of the final details such as shoulder work, rumble strips and paving markers can be done with all six lanes operating.

With large numbers of travelers expected to take to the skies and roads this holiday season, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) encouraging license holders to check their card’s expiration date to avoid delays at airport security checkpoints and possible citations on the road. Prior to air travel, Kentuckians should check the expiration date on their license, permit or personal ID to make sure it is valid for both their departure and return dates. Identity credentials can be renewed up to six months before the listed expiration date by visiting the Circuit Court Clerk office in the cardholder’s county of residence.
Some Kentuckians may need to obtain replacement copies of documents if they plan to present them to satisfy the requirements. A certified copy of a birth certificate can be acquired by contacting the vital statistics agency in the state of your birth. Those born in Kentucky may contact the Kentucky Office of Vital Statistics. To request a replacement Social Security card, visit the Social Security Administration's website.
If your personal information (i.e. current legal name) is different than what is displayed on your identity or lawful status document, you must present additional documentation, such as a marriage license or divorce decree. A full list of acceptable documents is available online.
To prepare for the upcoming changes, visit drive.ky.gov/confidentky.

Munfordville City Council Meeting

Mayor John Freeman called the November meeting of the Munfordville City Council to order promptly after the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer by Max Cody.

 

All Council members were present and following minutes of the last meeting being read and approved, the Council went right to work on the Financial Report which included reports about paving, installation of cameras and public work truck lights.

The paving projects by the city are being pushed along to finish before weather prevents the work.

 

Reports were stated to the Council that cameras have now been installed at the Munfordville Cemetery.

LED lights were used to replace those no longer working on Munfordville's public works trucks.

 

The Munfordville Police Department reported that in the previous month they answered 128 complaints, made 14 arrests, gave 15 citations, worked 11 accidents, had 10 calls to assist other departments, were called out for 3 domestic complaints, 2 assault calls, opened 8 cases, had 2 calls on thefts and provided escort in 4 situations.

 

There was no report from the Fire Department so the Council quickly scanned the Tourism Department Report dated October 4th, 2018.

The September meeting minutes were approved. The council reviewed 3 projects: the CDW, BBQ 10th year and Sports Complex.

 

The discussion of new ideas for 2019 began.

In Tourism's meeting, they also reviewed the Treasurer's Report.

The final report to the Council was the Mayor's Report.

Mayor Freeman immediately addressed water/sewer issues. The city has received notice of 21 violations which can carry fines of up to $5,000 for each of the violations since this is the 2nd time in 2 years they have been cited.  Fines could conceivably amount to just over $100,000.

The Mayor said the city was cited in January 2013, and then in both February and October of 2015.  In March of 2016 they paid a fine of $6,250 and entered an agreed

order to fix the issues.

The Mayor said there were conference calls he was never informed of and was not present for.

He stated that a plan was adopted in 2017 to make sure these issues did not happen again.

 

Recently the Mayor was informed of citizen complaints regarding smell from the sewer.  Those complaints to the EPA triggered an inspection of the plant which found the plant is not operating as it should. The plant operator told the Mayor he could handle the problem, yet did not inform the Mayor of the problems.  The inspection revealed many other problems including testing procedures at the plant. The Mayor and the engineer asked the Plant Operator many times over the last year only to be told that things were "good",

when, in fact, things were out of compliance.

The Mayor declared that the city owed CEA a debt of gratitude for helping to correct issues and helping them meet permit requirements over the last couple of months, free of charge.

 

The Mayor shared that there is a long, costly road ahead for making improvements and a complete evaluation of the system needs to be done keeping in mind what is best for the citizens of Munfordville.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Community Action of Southern Kentucky will begin the “Subsidy” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that provides heating assistance to eligible households on November 5th, 2018.  The significant cost of energy to heat homes leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm. Community Action of Southern Kentucky stands ready to help!

A household shall be considered to be eligible for LIHEAP subsidy when the household meets the basic eligibility criteria:

·         Makes and completes an application

·         Be responsible for home energy costs, directly or as an undesignated portion of their rent;

·         Have a combined household income, for the calendar month prior to the month of application, not in excess of 130% of the federal poverty level as listed in the Income Eligibility Guidelines;

·         Live in Kentucky when the application is made and apply in the county of residence; and

·         Not have liquid resources in excess of $2,000 or $3,000 if at least one person in the household is 60 years old or disabled, ($4,000 if resources are being used for living expenses due to catastrophic illness).

Applications will be taken in alphabetic order based on the first letter of the head of household’s last name at convenient Community Action offices, where applicants may also pick up the letter day schedule. Applicants must bring the following information to apply:

1.   Most recent heating bill or verification from landlord that the heating expenses are included in rent

2.   Social Security card or Permanent Resident card (Green Card) for each member of the household.

3.   Proof of household (all members) income for the preceding month.

Civil Action Dismissed Against Horse Cave

A man claiming her was unlawfully detained and arrested by Horse Cave Police has voluntarily halted the resulting federal case.  Voluntary dismissal was issued by the Western Kentucky District of the US District Court in Bowling Green.

The case stems from an August 2017 road block where Travis Branstetter alleged officers threatened to charge him for DUI but offered him a compromise if he would agree to assist in a drug sting.  The dismissed case names the City of Horse Cave, Horse Cave's Police Department, and the current officers Larry Dale Martin II, James Roberts and Sean Henry.  Henry was police chief at the time.

The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning the plaintiff is barred from bringing an action on the same claim.

A statement sent to WLOC by Mayor Randall Curry states no settlement payment was made for the dismissal.

Horse  Cave Has Authority to repair local street Intersection

Following a long process to transfer private property over to the city for ownership, Horse Cave can move forward with making badly needed repairs to a local intersection.   The entrance road to Dollar General just off of KY 218 is known as Meadowview Drive – and until recently has been under ownership of a private estate.  In September, an agreement was finally reached between the estate and the city to take it into public possession.  A city ordinance was drafted with a first reading held in September.  On October 8th, a second reading was held, officially making the road City of Horse Cave jurisdiction.  Numerous potholes exist at the location and are difficult to navigate.  A lot of criticism has recently circulated toward Dollar General, the city and the state for inaction.  A government entity cannot improve a private entrance.  With the road now accepted into the city system, Mayor Randall Curry says work is ready to begin immediately.  Crews were expected to start today (Monday, 10/15) but weather will ultimately dictate the work schedule.  Curry says the project involves milling and digging out the base of the entrance and properly building it up for the expected standard of traffic.  Previously, the private road was not engineered to handle existing volumes and was not engineered to handle the constant turning movements of commercial and delivery vehicles which can be damaging to pavement surfaces.  After roadway base is constructed, a final surface will be added.  Curry says he anticipates all of the work can be completed this year.
