For an annual $500 fee, the Christian County Animal Shelter will continue to take stray animals that were picked up in Trigg County, as the contract is the same as in previous years, said Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries.
The contract, which runs from July 1 of this year to June 30, 2011, requires that Trigg County workers take the animals to the animal shelter.
In other business, the fiscal court approved an amendment to the Cadiz-Trigg County Tourism Commission ordinance that will allow the commission to change the way transient taxes are collected from motels, hotels and resorts in the county.
Trigg County Attorney H.B. Quinn said that currently, the taxes are collected every quarter, and that the commission would like them to be collected every month. He added that no other changes were made to the ordinance.
The fiscal court also approved their monthly bills and heard a report from Trigg County Solid Waste Coordinator Jesse Thomas about summer trash pickup.
Additionally, the Riley Hollow Road bridge will be out for the next month, as crews started work to install a new bridge last Tuesday morning, Humphries said, adding that the $145,000 project will help water flow into the area and further down the river.
Most of the funding comes from the state, and the county will be saving some money by doing some of the work themselves, Humphries said.
Crews with Kyler Bridge Company started work last Tuesday morning, and the bridge is expected to be closed for about a month. Riley Hollow Road is off of Ky. 274 west of Cadiz.
