  • Officials deserve thanks

     I have heard with interest the political promises of the reduction of sewer rates for the users of the Shepherdsville sewer system. It is an empty political promise made without an understanding of the circumstances.

    Currently, the City is indebted for a sum in excess of $30 million for the sewer system. This debt has been passed from one generation to another due to poor management of past City Councils who incurred debt as a matter of course. The debt structure is such the expense will be shared with our children and grandchildren.

  • New system to be implemented in court system

      Bullitt County is scheduled to “go live” with the court system’s new Accounts Receivable Program on May 1, 2014.  There are currently 27 other Kentucky counties which have made the transition.  

    As it exists now, the accounting system is an antiquated system of hundreds of old-fashioned ledger cards. 

    Information regarding payments must be manually entered into the system where the court records are kept but there is no communication between that program and the bookkeeping program. 

  • An eventful year continues for school district

     In one sense, it seems like school just began yesterday, but in another way, it feels as if it has gone on a very long time.  Rather than waiting for the end of the year to recap, since so much has happened, this month I’ll devote to a little review.
