Here's What Happened at Campbell Co.'s "Quickest Ever" Fiscal Court Meeting

On Wednesday night, the fastest ever Campbell County Fiscal Court meeting was held in Alexandria, clocking in at just under ten minutes long.

“This could be a world-record meeting,” joked Judge-Executive Steve Pendery.

  • There was a first reading of an amendment to the Campbell County Official Roads List to add Keating Drive to the list.

  • A resolution was unanimously approved by the Fiscal Court approving a Change Order to TMS Construction for additional work required during reconstruction of Keating Drive. On June 4, the Fiscal Court accepted the bid of TMS Construction in the amount of $190,947 for the project. TMS Construction requested a Change Order of $9,407 for additional work that was performed to complete the reconstruction.

  • A resolution was also passed authorizing Judge Pendery to execute a professional services agreement with Thelen Associates Inc. for $31.691 for technical consulting work. Thelen will investigate the landslides that are effecting County-maintained roads at seven different sites. Thelen will then follow up with a report on preliminary concepts to stabilize parts of the roadway at each site. Based on that report, the County will be able to plan for the appropriate repairs.

  • There was a motion to appoint Jacob Daly and Robert Latham to the position of police officer grade-one. They will first begin the training process which takes 18 days to complete before they start their everyday jobs.

  • The Campbell County Fall Clean-Up will be held on October 24 and 25 from 8 a.m. -5 p.m., and October 26 from 8 a.m. -4 p.m. at Pendery Park, Campbell County Police Station and the Campbell County Transportation Center. More information may be found at Campbell County's website.
