  • Baute resigns as Ghent city attorney

    The Ghent City Commission accepted the resignation of Jason Baute of Carrollton as the city’s attorney during its regular meeting Tuesday, March 13

    In a brief letter to Mayor William Mumphrey dated March 5, Baute stated the resignation was effective immediately.

    The commission then voted 4-0 to hire attorney Alecia Gamm Hubbard for the position.

  • Have you met ... Dr. Milagros Rivera

    There’s a new face attending to patients at Carroll County Family Practice.

    Dr. Milagros Rivera began working at the practice, located in Carroll County Memorial Hospital, about two weeks ago after more than 13 years as a physician in the Louisville metropolitan area.

    Rivera, who is fluent in Spanish, has a passion for family practice and hopes to help members of the local Hispanic community.

  • Court eyes new system to heat, cool courthouse

    Last week started as an uncomfortable one for many who work in the old Carroll County Courthouse as spring-like temperatures moved in during the final week of winter.

    The courthouse has an old heating and cooling system that gives you a choice of using the heating system or air conditioning — but not both. And making this decision isn’t as easy as heading to the thermostat. To switch from heating to air conditioning, pipes have to be disconnected from the boiler system and moved to link up with the chiller system.

  • Single-wides may return to Prestonville

    Prestonville City Commission wants to lift the ban on placing single-wide mobile homes on lots in the city.

    At its March 12 meeting, the city commission was ready to hold its first reading on changes to its mobile home ordinance that now only allows double-wide homes.

    City attorney Alecia Gamm Hubbard asked that the commission delay action until its next meeting to give her time to prepare the ordinance change and do any research that is needed.

  • City leaders delay spending due to cost overruns

    Cost overruns on Carrollton’s new RV campground in the current budget means there won’t be funds for a new fire truck or to begin work on the riverwalk project in the coming budget year.

    City council members made these decisions last week during initial budget meetings with city department heads as they prepare its 2012-13 fiscal year spending plan.

    Before work began on the new RV campground, city leaders set a $1.5 million budget for the project, borrowing that money from the Kentucky Association of Counties.
