Fiscal court set for next budgeting workshop

The Clark County Fiscal Court will have its second meeting in as many weeks to continue reviewing proposals for the 2017-18 county budget.

The court is scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday to hear and discuss most areas of county government.

Presentations are scheduled for emergency medical services and 911 communications, the county road department, the coroner’s office, Emergency Management, solid waste, the animal shelter, Judge-Executive Henry Branham and his office staff, and the county fire department.

The fiscal court met March 29 for the first round of presentations from organizations including the Generations Center, Winchester-Clark County Parks and Recreation, the industrial authority, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Lower Howard’s Creek Nature Preserve and the heritage commission.

The complete budget should be presented to the fiscal court by May 1. Following a successful first reading of the budget ordinance, it must be sent to Frankfort for review by state officials. A second reading must be approved by the end of the current fiscal year June 30.
