 HEBRON ESTATES - The city of Hebron Estates has partnered with nearby Pioneer Village in recent years, most notable on an agreement for law enforcement patrol.

The city is partnering again as a result of changing state regulations involving street signs.

Cities now have until 2018 to come into compliance with new road sign regulations involving issues such as sign color, lettering size, height, and break-away polls.

Since all cities will fall under the regulations, Hebron Estates will work with Pioneer VIllage and mayor Gary Hatcher on understanding all legalities.

The Hebron Estates city council agreed to reimburse Hatcher, who will be attending a conference in Lexington pertaining to the new regulations.

Hatcher will return and share what he learns with both Pioneer Village and Hebron Estates city councils. Hebron Estates will reimburse Hatcher $85 for the effort.

In other business:

- Auditor Art Henson reviewed the city’s finances during the meeting.

According to Henson, the city increased in cash availability as much as $103,000 over a two-year period.

Expenditures were down about $25,000, but Henson reiterated that not a lot of roadwork took place in that time period. He reminded that the city had some paving work completed in the fall.

He added that city income was down slightly but that insurance tax revenue increased further.

“I think everything went well,” Henson said.

- Pioneer Village Police chief D.J. Reynolds reported to the council that a Scenic Trail residence experience a BB gun shooting at its front window.

Reynolds believed the situation to be an isolated incident. However, he advised residents to remain alert and contact PVPD with any further information.

- The next Hebron Estates City Council meeting takes place Tuesday, Jan. 7, 7 p.m., at the city community center on Burkland Boulevard. The public is invited to attend.
