Fiscal Court offered reward for information

The rash of road sign vandalism in LaRue County continues.

Timmy Brown, county road supervisor, said someone pulled up signposts and then ran over the signs in the Roanoke area where his crews replaced them last month at a cost of $1,200. Replacing the latest vandalism damage cost $525, Brown told LaRue Fiscal Court at its meeting Tuesday.

Sheriff Bobby Shoffner said one juvenile has been cited for having road signs in the back of his truck that came from the same general area, but he believes others may be involved.

The county has offered a $500 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone damaging or stealing road signs or signposts.

Fiscal Court also discussed additional road issues and insurance coverage for county government employees. For details, see the Oct. 21 print edition of The LaRue County Herald News.
