Tourists spend over $118M in Pulaski

CVB pleased with 2012-2013 fiscal year results


Somerset —

The funds had been expected to go to a number of other projects at Rocky Hollow, the Burnside Police Department, and Pulaski County Park, but in the face of deep cuts to the funding, that likely won’t happen this fiscal year. 
• The court approved a laundry list of items connected with the county’s Senior Citizens Center project, including an affirmative action plan, a resolution related to access to public records, a Title VI implementation plan, a resolution declaring the center a drug-free workplace, drug-free certification, a fair housing resolution, grievance procedures, and more.
• The court approved a resolution allowing the county to enter into an inter-local agreement with KACO that will let the county to enter leasing pool with KACO. Pulaski County Treasurer Joan Isaacs also asked that the magistrates approve leasing out an upcoming project to purchase and equip a new 911 center and purchase five new CAT mowing tractors. The court approved Isaacs’ request. 
• The court heard the first reading of an ordinance allowing the purchase of five new mowing tractors at around $615,000. Isaacs requested that the court approve entering into a lease with a manufacturer for three new backhoes. The four-year lease includes maintenance and a $1 buy-out.
The next Pulaski County Fiscal Court meeting is set for Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 10 a.m.
