Wayne County Fiscal Court Meets
Wayne County Fiscal Court met last night (Thursday) and learned more
about a natural gas feasibility study conducted recently by Bell
Engineering. The study looked at all viable options for bringing
natural gas service to a common point in Wayne County.
Kelly Gillespie, president of Bell Engineering, presented a copy of
the study to magistrates, noting that it includes five different
options for the delivery of natural gas service to potential
customers in the county. Gillespie said the next step will be to send
a questionnaire to potential industrial customers in the county in an
effort to gage what the immediate demand would be for natural gas
service.

Once that data is collected, a final report will come back to the
fiscal court, according to Gillespie. He noted that natural gas
service is a vital tool in industrial recruitment, since it provides
a power source that is significantly more cost effective than
electricity.

Also during the meeting, the court approved the rural secondary
program resolution with the state Transportation Cabinet. This
agreement allows state flex funding to be used to resurface rural
roads in Wayne County. County Judge-Executive Greg Rankin said that
he has not received a final dollar figure on flex funds that will be
available for Wayne County.

The court heard two presentations from taxing districts who have set
their rates for the next year. Anne Garner, with the Wayne County
Public Library, told magistrates that the board had set the tax rate
at the same level as last year at 9.3 cents for real estate and
tangible property. Motor vehicle and watercraft tax rates will remain
at 3.93 cents.

Sandra Jones with the Wayne County Health Department stated that the
board set the tax rate for the next year at 3 cents.
The court approved a new lease for the Stop precinct which will be
in the same location. The property recently sold and has a new
landowner so a new lease had to be signed.

Magistrates approved the appointment of Chris Kendrick to the
Airport Board. They will also look at sharing the cost of placing a
weather warning siren on the other side of the lake near the Wayne-
Russell County line.
