Daviess County Fiscal Court signed an agreement Thursday to offer county shelter reservations and point of sale transactions online using CivicPlus. The ability to reserve digitally will align the Parks Department with other county departments.
“It should be making it easier for everybody [especially] the Parks Department and the county, and brings us to the 21st century,” Judge-Executive Al Mattingly said.
In other business, Fiscal Court passed a resolution adding street lighting to district 5 of the Deer Valley Subdivision.
County Attorney Claud Porter said that for citizens in the county that would like to have street lighting in their area, there is a process where the citizens must agree to pay for the lights after an agreement is made.
The Court also approved the purchase of a new $35,375 Police Pursuit Vehicle for the Detention Center, replacing a failing unit.
The Court additionally continued their withstanding annual agreements throughout the county, including the Emergency Management Assistance Program; contract with weaver consultants for the contained landfill renewal; a playground lease with Daviess County Public Schools, Diocese of Owensboro and Stanley and Whitesville Associations; and Concessions with the Babe Ruth League.
