  • Committee to dive into future of new county aquatic center

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When a new version of the Bullitt County Parks Board was formed in July 2010, it had a mission and some vision.

    Part of the board’s mission statement was to pursue partnerships to maximize funding to support county objectives, such as an indoor aquatic facility.

    The members of that board are gone and another group has been given the reins of the county’s parks and recreation recommendations.

    Apparently, Bullitt Fiscal Court is looking at pursuing one of those mission goals from 2010.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE HAS NEW MAYOR AFTER ELLIS RESIGNS

    With five councilmembers present, three voted to fill the mayor's seat with James, whose wife is a councilmember.
