The Jessamine County Fiscal Court Tuesday approved a 50 cent per hour pay raise for Jessamine County Emergency Medical Service employees.
The raise, which covers all hours worked, including regular and scheduled overtime hours, will mean an increase of almost $600 per year for EMS crews.
Magistrates approved Jessamine County Sheriff Kevin Corman's request for the release of funds for the purchase of two police cruisers from Countryside Ford of Lawrenceburg at a cost of $19,722 each. The purchase will be the last of four cruisers that were approved by the court last year. The other two were purchased in February.
The court also voted to change the County Wide Recycling Center hours of operation. The center is currently open half a day on Saturday. The court voted to close it on Saturday and open both the recycling center and the convenience center from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Mondays.
