Todd Fiscal Court approved first reading of a $6.8 million budget during its regular meeting Friday morning.
Todd County Treasurer Tammy Robertson says the spending plan is very similar to the current fiscal year’s budget and it includes a 2.5 percent cost of living raise for employees.
Magistrate Billy Bryant cast the only “no” vote after his motion to amend the budget to direct $1,000 to each county park that’s overseen by a board died due to lack of a second.
Fiscal Court approved an expenditure of about $76,000 to pay off renovations to the roof of the Todd County Courthouse two years early, saving the county money in interest.
Court approved 45 mph speed limit zones for Old Allensville Road between KY 102 and Traughber Road, Miller Valley Road from US 68 to Pea Ridge Road and Hadden Mill Road from KY 106 to Pea Ridge Road.
Representatives of the Todd County Central High School Class of 2018 asked for and received a $1,000 donation to this year’s project graduation.
Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan says they’ve begun mailing out absentee ballots and in-house absentee voting for those who can’t be at their polling place on primary election day will begin May 7.
