Christian Fiscal Court convened this morning and approved JKS Architects and Engineers of Hopkinsville to handle design work of Carnegie Library.
The Carnegie Library board met last week and went over 7 proposals for this project and ultimately decided on the local architectural firm.
Magistrates then unanimously agreed to support a resolution asking the congress and President Barack Obama to exempt the military from legal requirements in the 2011 Budget Control Act from sequestration.
County Attorney Mike Foster says if sequestration is not halted, it would have devastating impact to the military, especially Fort Campbell.
If sequestration is not halted, the defense budget will be drastically cut by the government to the tune of $500 billion over the next ten years.
In other business, Magistrates approved Judge-Executive Steve Tribble to sign a deed of restriction concerning Ruff Park.
Foster describes the details of the deed of restriction.
In other business, Fiscal Court accepted a $3,525 bid from Jacob Fleming to purchase a Hopkinsville-Christian County Visitors Bureau vehicle, with Magistrate Jim Fleming abstaining from voting, since the bidder is his grand-son.
