Christian County Fiscal Court is endorsing industrial hemp, applying for a spay and neuter grant, and approving a technology bid, but they are not breaking state law or recommending a Crofton logging company ignore regulations. Pennyrile State Forest Manager Jim Bryan and Pennyrile Saw Mill Owner James Graber asked the court to remove the required bond Graber would need to haul logs from the forest.
Magistrate Jim Fleming says the fiscal court could not violate state law.
County Attorney Mike Foster says Graber does not have to bond the road, but he could face stiff fines from the state.
Graber says he wants to do what is right.
In other business, magistrates voted to approve applying for a 18-hundred dollar grant for the animal shelter, the 24-thousand 150 dollar bid from Cornerstone to install the new server at the clerk's office, and a resolution to support the reintroduction of industrial hemp in Kentucky.
Magistrate Jack Lackey says overall it would be a good thing for the county.
