Pennyrile Allied Community Services took over administering senior citizen programs in Christian County this month and officially got the lease for the A.W. Watts Senior Center approved by Christian Fiscal Court Tuesday morning.
PACS was already administering the services in the other eight Pennyrile Counties and won the bidding process for Christian this fiscal year. There is no rent charged to PACS on the condition they administer the programming.
County Attorney Mike Foster says it's important to note the Christian County Senior Citizens organization that had been operating the center won't be going away.
Foster says the West 7th Street building will also continue to be used for community functions as it has in the past under the new agreement.
PACS took over administration of the services effective July 1.
In other business, Fiscal Court approved the Sheriff's Office tax settlements from 2012 and approved a speed limit reduction to 25 miles per hour on McKnight Road in north Christian. Magistrates also approved second payment on the courthouse alley renovation, but expressed some concerns about the relatively slow pace of the project and lack of clarifications regarding delays by the contractor.
