The council first voted on the first reading of an ordinance allowing them to amend the 2007-2008 budget so they could pay back taxes to citizens living the de-annexed properties who included themselves in the class-action lawsuit against the city. $125,383.56 will be taken out of a transfer of certificate of deposit funds and placed in this year’s budget. The expenses will be increased to $123,104.16 to satisfy the litigation claims.
The council briefly discussed the voided ordinance of the annexation, which occurred on June 27. Rogers said the Trigg County Judge-Executive’s office had received a copy, as well as the sheriff’s office, County Clerk Wanda Thomas and Property Valuation Administrator Michael Bryan.
