    The city expects to carry forward over $69,000 in the general fund and another $81,000 in the municipal aid road fund.

    With the new revenue expected over the next 12 months, the city will have over $551,000 to spend in its general fund and another $128,000 in its road fund.

  • State's view change not proper one

    It won’t be a total disaster. Attendance will probably not be as bad as local officials fear.

    But the state Department of Education’s decision to change an initial decision reached last May is a slap in the face to local board members.

    By virtue of an April 24 decision, Bullitt County public school students will be in the classrooms on June 3. This is one more day than the amended calendar called for after wind and ice storms.

    Faced with possibly losing $400,000 in state funding, school officials had to agree.

  • MW contingency fund raises council concern

    MOUNT WASHINGTON ee" City Council members are set to vote on a $9.65 million budget this evening, but it’s unclear if council members will agree on one proposed line item.

    On paper, the city’s three budgets, including the general fund, water and sewer fund and the restricted fund are balanced and the city appears to be financially stable.

    No lay-offs are predicted for the upcoming fiscal year and city employees are receiving 2 percent raises.

  • Pool fees to increase July 1; study continues

    PIONEER VILLAGE - Whatever pools remain open after June 30, there will be a higher cost of admission to those who use the facilities.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court accepted the recommendation of parks director Kendall Grant to slightly increase fees for the county's swimming pools.

    To date, only the Maryville pool has been opened with the necessary repairs to meet the federal Virginia Graeme Baker safety bill.

    Grant recommended the admission fee rise from $3 to $3.50 and that the coupon books go from $15 to $20 for 10 tickets.
