The Jessamine County Fiscal Court has the budget on the back burner for now but was able to cross off a few items and consider other issues during Tuesday night’s meeting.
One budget item that will remain the same is the contract with Transportation Task Force supervisor Nancy Stone. She had originally proposed to take on additional work, but the court chose to only renew her current contract.
Another item the court took care of was to approve the 20-year lease of the John Preece Sports Complex to the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame Facility Board for $1. The lease is a part of several requirements the nonprofit needs in order to apply for federal and state grants in its pursuit to build the first pro football hall of fame in Kentucky. The fiscal court reserves the right to revoke the lease in the case that “substandard” facilities are built on the complex, county attorney Brian Goettl said.
