Fiscal Court approves new road work, deputy incentives

Oct. 17, 2012 —  

Carter Fiscal Court met in regular session Tuesday to discuss the dispensation of surplus property, ongoing legal matters, repairs to flood damaged roads, and potential incentives for sheriff’s deputies.

The court unanimously passed a resolution declaring a portion of land near Four Mile Road as surplus property. The property will be available for purchase at public auction, the date of which is yet to be determined.

During his quarterly report, Sheriff Casey Brammel requested the authority to use proceeds from excess fees to offer one-time training incentives to his deputies, noting that such expenditures would have no impact on the county budget.

The court unanimously approved the measure.

Brammel also announced that his department would be initiating a Crime Watch program that will allow community volunteers to assist in patrolling the county.

The Sheriff’s Department will take applications for Crime Watch at West Carter High School on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Judge-Executive Charles Wallace stated that a hearing regarding the ongoing lawsuit by Renee Stewart and Patrick Flannery is set Nov. 2. 

That hearing will take place in Paintsville, as Carter Circuit Judge Rebecca Phillips recused herself from hearing the case earlier this month.

The court also approved two bids from Pinkerton Drilling totaling $26,241 for work to be performed on Miller Lane and Bell’s Trace. 

In regular business, the court unanimously approved all financials statements, claims, and transfers for the current month.

The next regular meeting of Carter Fiscal court will take place at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at the Fiscal Courtroom.
Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 286-4201.
