LIBERTY - The Casey Fiscal Court hired a janitor for the new judicial center, which is scheduled to open in November, according to Judy Allen, assistant to county Judge-Executive Ronald Wright.

The court hired Tony Hayes as janitor at the recommendation of the state Administrative Office of the Courts. The AOC recommended Hayes begin while the work is being finished so he will become familiar with the building. The AOC will reimburse the county for Hayes' salary which has not been set.

Hayes submitted the only bid for the job. The court had advertised for a maintenance person, but there were no bidders.

Personnel for security and a bailiff will be hired by Sheriff Jerry Coffman. The AOC will pay the salaries and has recommended that people be hired on a part-time basis.


In other matters, Fiscal Court hired Mike Brown as a part time dispatcher for the E911 emergency communications center. His salary will be $7 per hour and he will work as needed.

The court also has been notified it will get a $49,500 Personal Responsibility in an Desirable Environment grant to clean up four or five dumps. The court is taking bids to clean up two dumps on Patsy Riffe Ridge and one each on Elmore Hill and Gadberry Hill.

Wright said the appliance pickup in the spring was a great success and a fall pickup is scheduled Oct. 20.

Wright, Magistrate Gary Johnson and Sheriff Coffman agreed to talk with Betty Malone Nash of Malone Cemetery Road after the meeting about problems on the road.

She talked to the court about her concern about burglaries and other mischief that has been happening on the road in the north end of the county and offered her help with the problems.
