Christian Fiscal Court made short work of one of its shortest agendas in recent memory this morning, though there was some positive news to pass along from the session.
Christian County Conservation District Chairman Wayne Boyd presented Judge-Executive Steve Tribble with a five thousand dollar check for the dead livestock removal program that allows farmers to call West Kentucky Waste Management when a farm animal dies at a relatively minor cost.
The county used to pay for the program in full when it was administered by Griffin Industries, but that all changed when federal regulations made it more difficult for those types of businesses to operate. The state pays another 75-hundred dollars of costs toward the program and the county pays the rest. Judge Tribble says it’s a collaborative effort.
Christian County Attorney Mike Foster says the program is needed in areas where agriculture is prominent and that the county is fortunate so many different agencies are willing to help.
In other action, court approved a routine request to allow grant money to flow to make a payment on the Trilogy Center.
