CUC adopts city code of ethics

City Utilities’ 2012 audit presented, approved

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

The Corbin City Utilities Commission approved the adoption of the City of Corbin’s Code of Ethics during their regular meeting Tuesday afternoon.

The approval was unanimous, and was done with the option the CUC can adopt ethics provisions that are more stringent than in the city’s code, according to General Manager Ron Herd.

Adopting the city code was required by state law, after the passage of House Bill 1 — a bill that deals with transparency in state government — by the Kentucky Legislature earlier this year.

Earlier, board members heard the presentation of their 2012 audit report by Nancy Logan, with the accounting firm of Marr, Miller & Myers, PSC.

“It is a good opinion of the principles we adhere to. The records are excellent. Everything’s in good order. He (Herd) did a good job of summarizing everything that went on during the last year,” Logan said to the board.

In his General Manager’s report, Herd said a consultant for CUC was working on the financial analyses for reviews of the utility’s rates, to determine what rate increases are needed.

He noted personnel with GRW Engineers continue to work on engineering reports on CUC’S Wastewater Treatment Plant Flow upgrade project. The utility has also applied with the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA) for a state clean water revolving loan for the project.

As for the KY 1232 Sewer Extension project in Knox County, Herd said the project will be bid this spring. One easement remains to be signed, and the section affected will be bid as an additive alternate. In addition, while the 2011 Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project is completed, he pointed out the retainage is being held until the contractor furnishes the post construction videos of the project. As of Tuesday, Herd said the engineer has received some of the videos.
