Fiscal Court awarded Hornback Construction of Hodgenville the winning bids to construct a new bridge on Goodin-Willliams Road and culvert on Viers Road.

Magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Sept. 27 accepted Hornback's bid of $88,960 for the bridge and $22,500 for the culvert. 

Owner Fred Hornback told the court he could start work within 30 days and estimated two weeks to complete the bridge, one week for the culvert.

The court approved employing Chad Hayes who resides in Taylor County and works for Yellow Ambulance in Louisville as a part time EMT with LaRue's emergency medical service. 

Pat Helm, EMS director, reported 86 ambulance transports last month.

Tommy Turner, county judge-executive, opened sealed bids on surplus items. Brad Downs had the winning bid for the county's 1998 Crown Victoria for $600. Ricky Clopton purchased the aluminum topper for $50.

Magistrates concurred with Planning and Zoning's approval of 2.6 acres at 766 Blanton Road in New Haven belonging to Danny Gentry being rezoned from A1 to R1A.

Clyde Veirs, county road supervisor, reported crews chip sealing on McDowell and Heying Lane spurs, Powell-Murray, Herbert Spratt and Spratt roads; repairing pumped up spots on Bell Road; repairing shoulders on Airline Road, cutting brush on Enlow Drive and Hancock Loop; and mow trimming Tonieville Road.

Veirs said crews are working in the Lyons Station area, completing their fourth round of mowing.
