 PIONEER VILLAGE - The boundaries of one northern Bullitt County are set in stone - or at least on a computer CD.

The Pioneer Village City Council accepted the complete boundaries of the municipality prepared by surveyor Brad Armstrong.

In order to receive proper funding in areas such as insurance premium taxes and vehicle taxes, all municipalities have been advised to have a new survey done.

In Pioneer Village, the cost was $3,600 and should reap much more than that in benefits.

City attorney Mark Edison said his cities in Bullitt County are currently undergoing a similar survey. Included in the survey will be the four annexations approved by the council since the city’s original boundaries were set.

With the unanimous approval of the council, Edison will send copies to the secretary of state and Department of Local Government in Frankfort. Copies will also be filed locally with the planning and zoning office, county clerk, and the property valuation administrator.

In other business:

*The city council agreed to a resolution allowing the county code enforcement office to continue handling any inspections or code issues in Pioneer Village.

Edison said the only other alternative would be to staff its own office of building inspectors and plan reviews.

*The next meeting of the Pioneer Village City Council will be a special one. Instead of meeting on Dec. 27, the council will now meet on Monday, Dec. 19. A Christmas dinner tradition for the council and community will begin at 6:30 p.m. The regular meeting of the council should begin at 7:30 p.m.

The public is invited to attend. The meeting is held at Becknell Hall on Summit Drive.
