Those who lost their jobs with the recent closing of Glass Door Solutions in Elkton have an opportunity to work again in that same building as the building on West Main Street is in the process of gearing back up under new ownership.
Todd County Judge-Executive Daryl Greenfield told Fiscal Court Friday that it’s reopening under the ownership of Steve Williams of Tennessee as D&D Glass Doors.
About 30 people will be employed by D&D when they are operating at full capacity. Novelis is bringing 125 new jobs to its new Guthrie plant in a couple years and Todd County has maintained the lowest unemployment rate in western Kentucky for several months. Judge Greenfield attributes the recent successes to cooperation among agencies and individuals and to a solid workforce.
In other business, Treasurer Tammy Robertson said every county department is under budget seven months through the fiscal year.
Coroner Timothy Wells requested approximately $2,000 to construct a walk-in cooler for his office, with Magistrate Brent Spurlin asking him for more details before action is taken. Todd County Sheriff Tracy White presented his 2017 annual settlement and said he will be picking up the department’s new cruiser on Monday
