Boone Fiscal Court to Meet in Public Next Week
The next meeting of the Boone County Fiscal Court will take place in public at the county administration building in Burlington, Judge/Executive Gary Moore said last week.
The county building reopens to the public, with restrictions, on Monday. The next fiscal court meeting is June 9.
Moore said that they will take precautions, such as spacing chairs apart, and possibly wearing masks, but he stated that they will do what they can to accommodate an audience. This will be the first meeting to include members of the public since mitigation efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 began in March.
Meetings have been broadcast online since.
The meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 9 was originally planned to take place in the morning but will instead happen at 6:30 p.m.
At last week's virtual meeting, commissioners listened to the first reading of the 2020-21 fiscal year budget.
Judge Moore said that fiscal year 2019 ended on a stronger note than anticipated, and that the county has earmarked $4 million of reserves to be set aside for unforseen surprises, such as if the revenues are down, especially more than expected.
The following people were appointed or reappointed to county boards:
1)Richard Gaston MD and Jason Burcham DVM, reappointed to the Northern Kentucky District Board of Health,
