With the next primary elections for Bullitt County Fiscal Court 14 months away, I would like to encourage all the residents of Bullitt County to attend two or more of the 28 (as of this writing) Fiscal Court meetings before the primary in 2014.
There are several issues with Representative Floyd’s defense of the so-called “property right.” He claims business owners have which would allow them to avoid any requirement that they ask smokers to smoke outside the building.
As in anything we have positives and negatives and even a half-filled glass of water can be referred to as half-full or half-empty. I prefer half-full. I am proud to call Bullitt County my birthplace and home. We are not without challenges to improve our county and solve more than our share of problems that lay before us.
I know the property owners are being harassed and being discriminated against on the trash service bill. The Council has made an agreement with Eco-Tech and they are in trouble with Eco-Tech because the bills have not been paid. The agreement made was if the renter did not pay the bill the owner would be responsible and have to pay the bill. That is not fair as the owner did not make the bill.
Maybe all the gambling talk in Frankfort is causing AT&T to bet again this year Kentucky consumers will give up their Kentucky Public Service Commission protection of regular telephone service. And they will lose again because they are putting all their cards on the table.
After receiving hundreds of e-mails from Bullitt County citizens, concerned about the views of our elected officials in Washington on the second amendment of our Constitution, and wanting to know my position, I will try to clearly state my position.
City Hall needs to put a copy of the contract the Council signed with Eco-Tech in the paper. That way the property owners can understand what the Council has given our rights away as property owners when we rent the property out and the renters do not pay the bills for the collection of trash removal service. I have not seen in writing how the contract reads with the city and Eco-Tech. The only thing I have seen is what Eco-Tech says we owe on the bill they sent out.
