LANCASTER - What was one of the shortest meetings of the Garrard County Planning Commission Tuesday was also possibly one of the most significant. The goals and objectives compiled by commissioners from six public hearings were slightly amended, approved, and are now awaiting presentation to the Fiscal Court.
"I would consider this a necessary, procedural meeting," Chairman Dick Brunson said of the 20-minute session. It was also the shortest, he agreed, and the easiest, he said with a long sigh.
Amendments to the document include changing the word "enforce" to "comply" in the objective, "comply with all building codes to ensure health, safety and welfare of residents."
Added to the document were the words "a variety of" to the objective, "ensure that a variety of affordable, decent, safe and sanitary housing is available for all Garrard County residents."
