Judge rules in Fiscal Court’s favor

(Continued)

Dec. 12, 2012 —

It is unclear at this time if Flannery and Stewart will appeal the ruling.

The meeting in question was centered on the first reading of two ordinances, which created the Northeast Regional Jail Authority.

The Kentucky Jailers Association has sued the Fiscal Courts in both Carter and Boyd counties. That case is set to be heard Dec. 17 in Franklin Circuit Court.

“I will not stop fighting this issue until it is dead,” Boggs said. “A win in the Franklin County case will kill the issue, but the bottom line is the cost to the tax payers. If Wallace would have spent half the effort working with me instead of trying to push this idea on the county, we would be even further ahead than we are today.”

Wallace declined to comment on either case.
