Christian Fiscal Court, after much discussion, is going forward with a change order for the Jail HVAC project. WBW Engineering representative, Thomas Waldron says the company replacing the 27 units on the jail ran into a small problem when placing one of the new units.
He adds that money to rotate the unit, fix the duct work and the electrical work can be taken from the air quality survey fund that was bid as part of the project.
Magistrates Jim Fleming and Rudolph Pettus voiced concerns about the company not doing it right the first time and costing the county more money. However, Terry Bowman pointed out the work has be to done.
The court voted five to one to approved the change order, with Fleming voting no. Magistrates Tom Jones and Edwin Long were absent. In other business, Fiscal Court approved an agreement with the City of Hopkinsville and the Pennyrile Arts Coucil for a 50-50 matching grant that will provide the community the opportunity to watch movies at the Alhambra Theatre. Fleming pointed out this would not compete with the Carmike on Fort Campbell Boulevard.
Meanwhile, Magistrates approved the 204-thousand dollar lease for eight new vehicles for the Sheriff's Department. Sheriff Livy Leavell says they will be selling nine vehicles once the new ones are here.
