Reports of Staff
City Manager Nagy presented a sample spreadsheet of budget for General Fund and
reported moving forward with insurance quotes and meetings scheduled to discuss the
utility bills collection process and plumbing issues at the trash compactor.
Assistant City Manager Matthew Belcher advised he had attended the wholesale power
meeting with Kentucky Utilities and the good news was no rate increase scheduled for
the city on 5/1 nor 7/1 this year. However he advised looking at the city’s rate structure
because a rate increase will likely occur in July 2010 and every year thereafter.
Police Chief Tim Gray reported receiving a $3000 grant from Wal-Mart to purchase
Fire Chief James Fomas reported having received approval through the KY Board of
Emergency Medical Services for the first paramedic class to be taught in Paris scheduled
for June 9th.
Beauman advised the pit bull ordinance did not include penalty provisions but placement
in Section 51 of the code addressed this issue. He stated an amendment was needed only
if the commission wished to up the penalty. He advised the commission to make a
decision regarding vacancy in the office of the mayor and schedule a special meeting to
make the appointment next week. He advised KLC offered free orientation training on
the drug and alcohol free workplace policy and the city must be certified with the state
before July 1 to receive a discount on the workers compensation policy.
Mayor Pro Tem Thornton thanked the many Central Kentucky Fire Departments,
Explorers, Honor Guards and local businesses that provided assistance during the funeral
of Mayor Don Kiser.
Motion was made by Galbraith, seconded by Fryman and unanimously carried to adjourn
at 7:30 PM.
