     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Trips to Shepherdsville to renew license plates and tags are notorious for being the annual task that makes birthdays lose some of their excitement.

    Mount Washington Mayor Barry Armstrong said he’s looking to make that trip a little less tedious.

  • What comes first? Fencing, drainage or concrete work

     CLERMONT -- What comes first… the concrete, the fencing or the drainage work?

    That turned out to be a complex question for members of Bullitt Fiscal Court.

    But, you also have to add the continuing situation revolving around the future of Mark Williams, the animal control officer.

    In the end of an hour-long discussion, court members asked for a drainage assessment from road department director Hyte Rouse in time for its May 18 meeting.

     CLERMONT -- Hyte Rouse and his road department crew can do some work to see if they can divert water from pouring into the Bullitt County Animal Shelter.

    But, it is going to be a tough fix.

    It is a fix that members of the Bullitt County Animal Shelter committee believe is only a temporary situation.

    The long-term goal is to have a new animal shelter.

    The immediate concern is to stop the flow of water into the facility, which is several feet lower than the surrounding property.

  • Hillview City Fair set for this weekend

     HILLVIEW - It will come early this year, but it will offer the same fun as every other year.

    The annual Hillview City Fair, presented by the Zoneton Trowel Club, will take place May 18-20 at the Hillview Government Center.

    Harlen Compton, representing the club, said the event dates were changed from June to May due to carnival company accessibility and an effort to avoid conflicting with other similar events such as the Bullitt County Fair.

    “We hope it’ll also make it easier for students still in school to attend,” he added.
