The Fiscal Court is responsible for the financial oversight of Woodford County. These decisions are not always easy, but we have the responsibility to make the best use of our taxpayer’s dollars
In 2011, Judge Coyle appointed a committee to review Woodford County’s Recycling Department with the goal of determining if there were opportunities to reduce the cost of recycling without limiting services to county. The committee was made up of Magistrates Bruce Gill and Larry Craig, County Judge-Executive John Coyle and myself as Chair. For eight months we thoroughly investigated the current state of recycling in Woodford County, visiting neighboring programs to compare effectiveness, learn of possible alternatives and determine best practices.
After this review, the committee agreed to allow two plans for Woodford County’s Recycling Center to be presented before the Fiscal Court at it’s February Work Sessions. This report outlines the first viewpoint and is intended to demonstrate how Woodford County can provide similar, and even improved, services while drastically reducing the burden to tax payers.
