Green County Fiscal Court met in regular session Thursday, July 19th. Court members acknowledged the tax rate for the health department in Green County which will remain the same as last year, approved the appointment of Christy Marr to a two year term on the Green County Park Board, approved the appointment of Brian Ferguson as the Flood Plain Coordinator, gave their authorization to making application for an emergency management grant that would be used to help purchase radios and accepted 73,946 dollars in state grant funding as part of the rubber modified asphalt paving program in the state. This money will be used to help pay for a paving project on J.T. Ward Road in Green County. Fund raising efforts are officially underway to raise money to help restore the Old Courthouse on the square in downtown Greensburg. Green County Judge Executive John Frank officially proclaimed Saturday, July 14th, as kick-off day for these fund raising efforts. Judge Frank said restoration of the Old Courthouse in downtown Greensburg could easily be a 100,000 dollar project. Anyone needing more information about this or that would like to make a donation to the project can phone the Green County Judge Executive’s Office in Greensburg at 270-932-4024. The County Attorney’s office in Green County will be applying for grant funding that, if awarded, could result in victims of violent crime in Green County being able to get some assistance from a locally based victim’s advocate in regard to legal proceedings they may be involved in. Green County Fiscal Court magistrates approved allowing the grant funding to pass through the county budget on to the county attorney’s office where it would help pay for the operation of a victim’s advocate office. The Grant is 80 / 20 with a 20 percent match required from the county which could be in the form of in-kind or volunteer work. It would be for one year with no guarantee of another year of funding. Green County Attorney Russ Goff says if the grant is awarded he hopes a victim’s advocate can be available in Green County sometime in the month of October.
