Although he wasn't listed on the agenda, Lincoln County Coroner Bill Demrow was in the audience at fiscal court Tuesday, perhaps getting the hang of things.
The IJ reported last week that Mr. Demrow will be appointed Lincoln County judge executive by the governor if and when the current judge executive, Buckwheat Gilbert, leaves office. The judge has said he has no plans to leave, however.
It has since been learned that the judge may be offered a job with the Bluegrass Area Development District, but Judge Gilbert wouldn't confirm that.
Asked why he was in fiscal court Tuesday, Mr. Demrow said, "I'm here as a concerned citizen."
As Mr. Demrow watched, magistrates passed on first reading a strengthening of the nuisance ordinance, which regulates structures that are eyesores and public-health threats.
