LIBERTY - Casey County Fiscal Court accepted the resignation Tuesday of Freeman Luttrell, constable in the 1st District, who left the job to take a position as deputy with Casey County Sheriff's Department.
Luttrell, 34, began his duties Tuesday. He lives on Merritt Ridge Road in Windsor.
He was elected constable in 2002 and has been working closely with Casey Sheriff Jerry Coffman and his duties.
"He has shown an interest in law enforcement since he became constable and has helped us a lot," said Coffman. "I believe he will make a good deputy."
Luttrell will work evenings. He also is employed as a school bus driver and custodian at Phelps Elementary School.
Luttrell majored in enforcement at Somerset Community College and has several hours of training, Coffman said.
In other business, Judge-Executive Ronald Wright said the county will get $80,800 from the Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment program to clean up a dump on Smith Ridge Road.
