  • Hillview to help Fox Chase control mosquito population

     FOX CHASE - In recent years the city of Fox Chase hasn’t fared well in interlocal agreements with neighboring cities regarding snow removal and police patrols.

    But the city council took care of business when it came to mosquitoes.

    The council unanimously approved the allowance of Hillview city employees to spray Fox Chase with anti-mosquito spray.

    Fox Chase mayor Owen Taylor said Hillview purchased the spray for its own city, offering to also spray Fox Chase for free if Fox Chase paid for the spray used within its city limits.

  • Another city looks to regulate fireworks stands

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Just days after another city revamped its regulations, the Shepherdsville town board is looking to make changes to its ordinance regulating temporary structures that sell fireworks.

    The Shepherdsville City Council held the first reading of its ordinance on fireworks sales.

    In an ordinance very similar to one adopted by the Hillview City Council, businesses selling fireworks this summer will pay a flat $1,000 permit fee.

    The permit would cover 14 days.

  • Flat fee suggested to help pay for dispatch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- To operate one of the most vital, yet most often overlooked, departments of county government, the annual price tag is about $1 million for Bullitt County Central Dispatch.

    The problem is that while a monthly $1 landline fee was imposed years ago, that revenue is dropping.

    The reason?

    Many people are getting rid of their land lines in the age of technology.
