  • Nuisance ordinance OK’d

     

    After several attempts in recent months, the Spencer County Fiscal Court approved the first reading of a county nuisance ordinance that was considerably shorter and perhaps less intrusive than the one originally proposed earlier in the year.

    Earlier versions of the ordinance proposed would have allowed for the use of aerial photography to determine if property owners were in violation, and also included broader language pertaining to vehicles, trailers and boats that could have been deemed abandoned.

  • Report child abuse

    April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and it is a sad commentary on our society when we need a public awareness campaign to remind us how we should care for the most vulnerable among us.

    Last year in Spencer County, officials investigated over 170 reports of child abuse, involving nearly 250 children.

    Child abuse and neglect is not limited to one neighborhood, or social-economic class. It happens across the county, meaning that one of these children who are hurting, hungry, cold or mistreated, may live across the street or down the road from you.
