magistrates that a recent review of the jail by the Kentucky Association of
Counties indicated operations were up to date and there were no areas of
non-compliance. He said the jail roof could use some patching because of
recent leaks and requested some preventive maintenance be performed to keep
a clay drain pipe located beneath the jail from collapsing.
He also pointed out to
magistrates that the number of state inmates in the jail has been declining
and that there had been some overcrowding on the county side of the
Road Supervisor Dane
Howard reported that he had reviewed Old State Fork Spur Road (CR #1013) for
closure. He said the roadway is just over a half-mile long and that property
owners had asked that it be taken out of the county maintenance plan.
He said it was his
recommendation to take it out of the road program and remove it from the
maintenance schedule. A public hearing on the matter was scheduled for the
January meeting of fiscal court.
Howard also reported
that he had reviewed a newly constructed roadway and recommended it for
inclusion into the road system. Katelyn Lane is located west of Tollesboro
and is a through road connecting to Ky. Rt. 10 and Craycraft Road. It is 965
feet in length. He noted the roadway was above and beyond what is required
by the county for consideration. Magistrates approved the recommendation.
Howard said a piling
project on Straight Fork was wrapping up and that work on Holly Road was
scheduled to begin.
Howard reported grading
had been done to Kilbreth Road, Rock Camp Road, Paint Lick Road, Long
Branch, Elk Lick Road, Norman Lane and Dry Hollow Road. He said pipe had
been installed or repaired at Charters and May Hollow. Rock Run Road also
had repairs made and potholes were patched at Quincy.
Howard’s report also
listed repairs and projects for Straight Fork Road, Hackworth Branch,
McDowell Road, Rock Camp Road, Evans Lane, Paint Lick Road, May Hollow, Tar
Fork Road, Slate Hollow Road, Bentley Lane and Evans Lane.
