On Monday, Sept. 27, the Garrard County Fiscal Court will hold a special meeting at the Garrard County High School to discuss the goals and objectives developed by the Garrard County Planning Commission. These goals have been presented after much deliberation, public input, and consideration and were unanimously approved by the commission. This is the first opportunity for the Fiscal Court to consider anything from the commission they formed in March 2003.
Public comment on the goals and objectives will be received. Judge Hasty has assured me this will be done in a civil, orderly manner and opinions will be directed to the court, not to any members of the audience. There are no other items on the agenda, so no topics other than the goals and objectives may be discussed.
I encourage anyone with an opinion on this topic to attend the meeting. All decisions of the fiscal court affect our community. This particular decision is one of the most important to come before the court. The court will decide whether we will plan for our future or continue to float listlessly toward tomorrow.
