  • Another budget battle

    Members of the Spencer County Fiscal Court were scheduled to meet this morning in a special meeting in hopes of finding common ground on the 2017-18 budget to avoid a repeat of the budget battle last year that took the county to the brink of a shutdown.

    However, if Monday night’s meeting is any indication, there are several gaps that will need to be bridged and emotions may be running high. The court deadlocked in a 3-3 tie and failed to approve the second reading of the budget, prompting the call for a special meeting this morning.

    The City of Taylorsville is proceeding with work on repairs to a wastewater pump station that last year, overflowed and nearly created a dangerous spill of sewage into Taylorsville Lake.

    The station, which serves the cottages at Edgewater Resorts, the Taylorsville Lake Marina and the campground at Taylorsville Lake State Park, has been the source of a lot of discussion and negations recently after Premier Resorts, Inc., the company that operated Edgewater and who had the operator’s license for the facility, closed their doors last fall.

  • From our readers - Thanks to all who supported A Ruff Day at the Fairgrounds

    The Spencer County Animal Shelter would like to give great thanks to all who attended our shelter festival, A Ruff Day at the Fairgrounds. We’re very grateful for all who volunteered to organize the event, and the vendors who brought their wares for sale. And of course we could not have held this event without the support of a host of businesses, organizations, first responders and volunteers.
