Knox Fiscal Court approves first reading of budget amendment

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

The first reading of an ordinance relating to the budget for Fiscal Year 2012-13 was approved by the Knox County Fiscal Court during their regular session Wednesday morning.

The action came after the court’s Finance Committee recently met, and found a small deficit which would be reflected in the budget, according to County Judge-Executive J. M. Hall.

Hall told court members the decrease was in the amount of $116,312.50, and was carried over from last year. He also said adjustments would be made from the various funding sources the court receives.

Hall noted the total budget was estimated at around $11 million.

“This will balance out the budget,” he said about the budget amendment.

Court members also approved a resolution on the agreement between the Fiscal Court and the state Transportation Cabinet, which affects rural roads in the county. Also approved was County Attorney Charley Greene Dixon’s delinquent tax report for September, in the amount of $5,546.67, as well as Sheriff John Pickard’s 3rd quarter fee report, the clerk’s budget and cumulative quarterly report, and the County Treasurer’s monthly report.

Jailer Mary Hammons said her office is losing a part-time employee, Tim Blakely, who is moving north to return to work for the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Hall reminded the audience that “Fright Night” for Trick-or-Treaters will take place Tuesday at the Courthouse Square from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The event is open for all residents in Barbourville and Knox County.

The judge closed the session asking court members to keep Magistrate Pat McDonald in their thoughts and prayers. McDonald was not in attendance at Wednesday’s meeting due to an illness for the last one-to-two weeks, and has been hospitalized in Lexington at Central Baptist Hospital. Hall said McDonald was expected to leave the hospital Wednesday.
