Something else of note about today’s Fiscal Court meeting…
The Fiscal Court met for maybe 45 minutes in executive session to discuss a business proposal with an unidentified business. The discussion could be held behind closed doors because public discussion of the proposal could endanger the possibility of it happening. Kentucky statutes allow for businesses to meet behind closed doors with government entities in these cases, as long as it has not already been made public knowledge that the business is considring locating in the area.
Nathan Mick represented whatever business it was. Wilson said that the involved parties are still in negotiations.
There are two proverbial ‘feathers’ Garrard County officials have been seeking for their economic development hats: one is a grocery store and the other is a business to occupy the never-been-occupied spec building in the industrial park. It’s possible today’s executive session discussion could have been about either of those two projects. Of course, it could also have been about something entirely different. At this point, we’ll just have to wait and see.
