Garrard Conversations was on a brief hiatus over the new year’s break, thanks to me getting sick and my brother getting married way out in Eastern Kentucky. But I’m back now, and will be posting regularly again.

The Bluegrass 911 board met this morning and went into executive session for about an hour to discuss in part “potential litigation.” A representative from Dulworth, Breed and Karns, the office hired to review the past six months of the center’s finances and make recommendations, sat in with the board to discuss the litigation.
In case you don’t remember, the former director of the 911 center, who also directed the Lincoln 911 center before it and the Garrard center merged, resigned in July after problems with the budget came to light. Tens of thousands in unpaid bills and taxes have been discovered, and Dulworth, Breed and Karns has been hired by the board to help it decide what to do.
In September the board received drafts of DBK’s investigation, but that draft has not been made public. The board, especially Stanford Mayor and Board Chairman Bill Miracle, has been “negotiating” with DBK on what to do about its findings.
SO, nothing major has been released and there are no new revelations about the center’s financial situation, but the board is still meeting and discussing things with DBK. So things are apparently moving forward, even if they’re moving forward slowly. Miracle did tell me the results of the investigation won’t be released anytime soon.
