Three ordinances, including one for the 2013 auto tax rate, were approved by the Corbin City Commission during a special meeting Friday.
All three were given a second reading during the session at Corbin City Hall, and now become law with their approval.
The auto tax rate will be the same as last year and previous years, at 24.23 cents per $100 in value. Of that amount, 0.1687 cents will go to the city’s current expense fund, while 0.06 cents goes to the police and firemen pension fund, and 0.0136 cents goes to the library fund.
Also approved was an ordinance establishing a stop sign at Sanderlin Drive and Brookside Lane, while the other one sets up a school zone on Goodwin Street, between 17th and 18th Streets, near Corbin Intermediate School.
Commissioners approved Mayor Willard McBurney to sign a grant application for the London/Corbin Airport, which enables the airport to get a federal grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for $150,000. The grant money will be used by the airport to put up 6,000 running feet of fencing on the airport property. Airport Manager Larry Corum said Friday the fencing will be an eight-foot-high barbed wire fence.
In addition, a $150 refund was approved for Melissa Cupp and Mark Lawson after they told the city they decided not to use the Corbin Civic Center as originally planned.
Later, the commission went into executive session to discuss personnel, pending litigation, and/or the sale or purchase of real property. No formal action was taken.
Two special city commission meetings, to approve an ordinance setting the city’s property tax rate for 2013, will be held Thursday and Friday at City Hall, starting at 8:30 a.m. both days.
