    This letter is in response to Dennis Webster’s letter published Sept. 11, 2014, concerning dirt and gravel left in his drive after Harley Drive was resurfaced.

  • Resident wants mess in drive cleaned up

     Editor:

    It’s been three weeks since they paved Harley Drive, leaving the mess of dirt and gravel in my drive for me to clean up.

  • Mattresses must be bagged for trash

    Editor:

    I have noticed several used mattresses along the curb recently for pick up by the trash collectors. Rumpke will pick up mattresses and furniture if they are properly prepared. 

    Due to the bed bug infestation, these items will not be taken by Rumpke unless they are sealed in a plastic bag. The bags are available from the city by contacting the mayor’s office at (502) 732-7051 or Public Works at 304 Sycamore Street, (502) 732-7050, or the Code Enforcement Officer at (502) 732-7043. 

  • Office appreciates response to robbery

    Editor:

    I want to say a very big thank you to the Carrollton Police Department for its help and effort in responding to the robbery in June at U.S. Bank.  They responded very quickly and continued to work very diligently in making sure the guy was apprehended and protected.

  • Thanks to all who helped with poker run

    Carroll County is a great place to call home. We are a small knit community that pulls together time after time to help others in need. On Aug. 2, I was overwhelmed at the generosity of many people from this small town. Thanks to some very special people, the funeral expenses for my fiancé have been paid in full.

  • Event will help with Smith expenses

    Editor:

    On Aug. 2, people gathered at McCool’s Tavern in Ghent, Ky. to raise money to help pay the final cost of the funeral for Leonda Smith.

    Riders came together and rode through Kentucky and Indiana,  returning to McCool’s in Ghent.  Local business owners provided a meal, door prizes and raffle items. Donations were accepted from everyone.

  • Poker Run raises funds for Christmas

    Editor:

    We would like to say “thank you” to everyone who donated to the Christmas in August Poker Run.

    Your donations help generate money through our raffle and silent auction. We truly appreciate all the businesses who were able to help us. I would list everyone individually but there are more than 100.

  • Taxpayer unhappy with paving work

    Editor:

    As taxpayers sometimes we wonder where our money is spent. I saw it used Thursday on Harley Drive. They finally paved the street after several years. But it was a problem and no one seemed to want to fix it. The company the city hired to do the work piled all the dirt and gravel in my driveway. I asked the paving company who was going to fix it and they said they were. But after paving the street, they left, leaving the clean up for me.

  • New policy concerns rescue squad officers

    Editor:

    This article is being written as a direct rebuttal to the allegations brought against the rescue squad and its members.

    These allegations are not only untrue but also a direct attack against the squad and its members. If there is proof that there have been recent accidents involving the rescue squad and their privately owned vehicles, while responding to incidents it needs to be brought forth to the Board of Directors of Carroll County Rescue.
