The Lyon County Fiscal Court held its regularly scheduled meeting in Thursday, Feb. 9 and agenda items included discussion of purchase of a sign for Lee S. Jones Park and approval of e-poll books.
During an update from the Road Department, Supervisor Tommy Melton said the county used 178 tons of salt during recent winter weather, leaving it with 27 tons right now. He also said there were a few trees down because of high winds.
Lyon County Judge-Executive Jaime Green presented the fiscal court with different proposals she had received for a new sign for Lee S. Jones Park. She told it the Lake Barkley Tourism department had agreed to pay $25,000 toward a new sign at its last meeting in exchange for its logo being on the base.
Green had attempted to secure three bids, but had no luck hearing back from a third interested party. However, Husk Signs had submitted two different bids, one for $28,860 and one for $29,340. The more expensive sign has a slight 3-D effect and an added graphic. The other bid was from Hoard Custom Signs for $40,000.
After reviewing proposals, which included mock-ups, and hearing about the response from each company by Green, the fiscal court voted to purchase the $29,340 sign from Husk.
Green also told the fiscal court that due to a new state mandate, every county was now required to purchase E-Poll books. It will be helping to reimburse some of the cost as long as the county applies for the required grant, which it will. Lyon County Clerk Lori Duff presented the fiscal court with two options: KNOWiNK and Tenex. The county currently has Tenex, and Duff said they have had some issues with it. KNOWiNK is compatible with the Tenex system. The fiscal court voted to purchase the KNOWiNK books.
The fiscal court also approved the Pennyrile Hazard Mitigation Plan Resolution. It must do this every five years, and it makes the county eligible to receive hazard mitigation funding when it apply for the funding during disasters.
In other business, Chad Kemper, Ryan Fackler and Deanna Doom were all appointed to four-year terms on the Lyon County Housing Authority.
