Trigg County and other counties that have Kentucky Mesonet automated weather stations may soon have to pay $5,000 a year to help support them.

Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said this is something magistrates on the Trigg County Fiscal Court will look at in the new fiscal year, which starts on Tuesday, July 1, but he’s quite receptive to the idea.

“I think it’s a great benefit to our community and a great asset to our farmers and our agricultural community,” said Alexander. “And we have the money in our budget.”

Kentucky State Climatologist Dr. Stuart Foster said the data collected – temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind speed/direction and solar radiation – is useful for emergency management and economic development purposes as well.
