Fiscal Court proposes cut in jail population

(Continued)

April 17, 2013 —

Additionally, Greenhill asked that Boggs begin submitting quarterly reports to the Fiscal Court in accordance with KRS 441.105, including mileage logs and staff time sheets.

When specifically asked, Greenhill said she didn’t believe the jail was being mismanaged but felt that the Fiscal Court needed the information to properly address the facility’s needs.

Fiscal Court unanimously approved the first reading of the ordinance. In order to become law, the ordinance must be read and approved a second time and published in the newspaper of record for the county, which is the Journal-Times.

“This is just another attempted power grab. They say they want to work with me but I find it odd that they drafted this ordinance and never spoke to me one time about it,” Boggs said after the meeting.

“I’ve worked there for two years and I’ve never seen an inmate sleeping on the floor,” said jail guard Wayne Sexton.

According to Boggs and Sexton, county, state and federal inmates are housed in completely separate pods and sleep on mobile cots when beds are not available.

The next regular Fiscal Court meeting is scheduled at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21, at the courthouse.
