  • City voices disapproval of proposed school facilities plan

    The Lebanon City Council has serious concerns about the Local Planning Committee’s facilities plan, which if approved by the Marion County Board of Education, would result to the construction of a new 8-9 center adjacent to the Marion County High School campus and the relocation of Lebanon Elementary School to the current Marion County Knight Academy.

  • County receives funding to synchronize dispatch clocks

    The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced an Area Development Fund (ADF) Grant of $6,857.66 to Marion County Fiscal Court for the purchase of E911 NetClock synchronization equipment.
    The master clock system will synchronize all emergency dispatch times, which will allow for improved consistency and accuracy in record keeping. Currently, the dispatch systems used by the county have no centralized clock. The NetClock system will synchronize all times within one millisecond.

  • Residents urge county to do something about nuisance properties

    For years now, the Marion County Fiscal Court has been hearing from local residents regarding the need for a nuisance ordinance to address property eyesores and potential health hazards throughout the county. And, time and time again, magistrates discuss the problems, but nothing happens.

    Last week, it was more of the same when Sergeant J.W. Sullivan attended the fiscal court’s meeting on May 17 to express his concerns regarding nuisance properties and animal control.

  • 2018 May Primary Election results

    Marion County voters decided to keep the old sheriff in town.
    Sheriff Jimmy Clements defeated Tony Belcher during Tuesday’s Primary Election, receiving a total of 3,200 votes. Belcher received 905 votes.  
    “I am just relieved that this is behind us, and I can get back to concentrating fully on work,” Clements said Tuesday evening after receiving the final results. “As much as anything, this election was about my staff and continuing what we’ve been doing.”

  • Growing pains

    Marion County Judge/Executive David Daugherty summed up the fiscal court’s two-hour budget work session Saturday morning in just two words: “Growing pains.”

    While the county’s growth is proving to be phenomenal for the local unemployment rate and the local economy, it also translates to a number of obstacles for county government.

  • Marion County Fiscal Court approves Maker’s Mark agreement

    After nearly an hour of discussion Thursday afternoon between the members of the Marion County Fiscal Court and community members, the fiscal court approved a resolution to enter into a memorandum of agreement regarding issuance of industrial revenue bonds for Maker’s Mark warehouses and the industrial building on Veterans Memorial Parkway (the bypass) in Lebanon. The location of the warehouses will be 512 Brown Forman Road near Raywick.
