Todd Fiscal Court heard updates on two services important to its citizens when magistrates met at the courthouse Friday morning.
Residents outside of the cities of Elkton and Guthrie have been without an option for curbside trash collection since Republic Services abandoned its customers at the end of June. Waste Enterprises has committed to begin running those routes if they can get 250 customers to sign up and personnel from the company will be at the Todd County Courthouse Friday (Jul 13) from 1 until 4:30 p.m., Monday (Jul 16) from 1 until 4:30 and Tuesday (Jul 17) from 8 a.m. until noon.
Judge-Executive Todd Mansfield says Waste Enterprises has given possibilities on rates, but questions can be directed to company officials during the sign-up period.
Meanwhile, Jim Askins of Design Build, LLC gave an update on Kentucky Wired in Todd County. The initiative is designed to bring new broadband infrastructure to all 120 Kentucky counties by the end of 2020 and Askins says there will be three sites in Todd County.
Askins says work will pick up in western Kentucky in the coming months.
He says companies, small businesses and public entities will have the opportunity to deliver broadband internet service to customers and it can either be through the air or hardwired to homes.
Treasurer Tammy Robertson notified magistrates that the county finished the fiscal year under budget and with $4.6 million in total assets.
