    North Bullitt only had a 30-24 lead at halftime but then came out and outscored the Lady Tigers 28-10 in the third period.

  • Sanitation district will raise rates for ‘18

     HILLVIEW -- It can and it will.

    The Bullitt County Sanitation District earned the ability to impose up to a 12 percent annual rate increase.

    This was allowed by Bullitt Fiscal Court, which still has the right to review the request but has no power to stop it if it exceeds the 12 percent rate.

    At its recent meeting, the sanitation board voted 2-0 to increase the rates 12 percent for a second straight year. The increase will be effective in February.

  • Senior center gets a boost from fiscal court

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Myrtle Holthouser likes her visits to the Multi-Purpose Senior Citizens facility in Shepherdsville.

    However, with shrinking funds in the community action agency’s budget, providing transportation services to and from the facility could be in jeopardy.

    A recent plea in The Pioneer News may have resulted in some assistance.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court approved $1,500 for each of the next two months with a possible $10,000 commitment for the rest of its fiscal year.

    Relief may be in sight.

    The Bullitt County Public School will meet tonight at 6 p.m. and one topic will be to shut down classes on that date.

    But it appears there will be no choice but to close classes.
