LIBERTY - A Russell County company will do random drug testing for all county employees in Casey County.
Fiscal Court agreed Monday to contract with Premier Drug Testing. The company will be paid $99 annually plus an extra fee that runs from $5 to $50 depending on the test.
Judge-Executive Ronald Wright said the company currently does drug testing in more than 30 counties.
"It can provide the testing we need to meet the state Transportation Cabinet regulations," he said.
The company also will do testing on site should there be a traffic accident involving a county employee who has a commercial driver's license. He said the state requires employees with CDLs to be tested randomly.
The firm provides 24-hour service.
Wright said the county can go as in-depth with the testing as it wants and that the company will come to the Detention Center to do testing.
