  • REDISTRICTING: School system looks to maximize facilities

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Maybe the toughest decision made by a school board member is when the topic of redistricting students from one place to another surfaces.

    Due to the growth of the county, especially in the eastern quadrant, Bullitt County Public School Board members will once again have to tackle the redistricting issue.

    While there are major overcrowding issues in the Bullitt East feeder area, the option determined to be the one for recommendation will affect just about every school in the county.

  • Hillview looks to annex additional property

     HILLVIEW - Following a consistent barrage of meetings involving heavier issues this year, the Hillview City Council caught a collective breath in May.

  • MW sports complex moving forward in planning stages

  • 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.

    And, with upcoming requirements, that department is facing some expensive upgrades in order to protect life and property in the county.

    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.

  • Team effort paves road to state approval

     As Bullitt County receives over $123 million in road project funding in the next six years, including the $25 million in federal revenue for the new I-65 interchange between Highway 480 and Highway 245, it is time to thank all of those who were involved in the long, hard, and complicated process of obtaining that funding.

    I want to thank my House counterparts, Representatives Russell Webber, James Tipton, and Linda Belcher for their hard work, but there are others who should be equally praised for their dedication.
