Communit00ie00 THE BATH COUNTY NEWS-OUTLOOK , Owingsville, Ky.--Week of February 13- February 20, 2003 L .... Snow removBl--AnO{hercou--Ple of inches of snow made for more work for residents who had sidewalks that needed shoveling last week.

(News-Outlook photo, Ken Metz) City council proposes an ordinance for recreation, tourism [ --from front page ] lines relating to the acceptance of privately-owned streets and to curbs for city streets. Ordinance #6-2003, an ordinance of the City of Owingsville, amend- ing the City of Owingsville Code of Ordinance No. 14-1986, Article IV, s403.3(B), had its first reading. The ordinance pertains to accessory buildings in yards of city residents, clarifying the current law with spe- cific measurements, location, etc. This was recommended from the Planning and Zoning Commission after careful consideration. After a motion from council member Bob Ray and a second from council mem- ber Norman Crouch, the first read- ing was accepted, 5-0. Two resolutions were passed by the council. The first was Resolution #2003- 6, a resolution of the City Council of Owingsville regarding environmen- tal mitigation measures. The resolu- tion stemmed from USDA Rural Development, who awarded the city half the necessary funds for the sew- er project. afloat. Currently a rough draft of the park is nearing completion. There will be a soccer field, a softball field, a base- ball field and two smaller (tee-ball) fields. The design also shows a walk- ing track, playground and a conces- sion stand. The property would be deeded to the commission and the commission would create rules and govern the park. The first reading of Ordinance #3-2003 was accepted unanimously. The second reading of Ordinance #1-2003, an ordinance of the City of Owingsville, Ky., amending the City of Owingsville Code of Ordinance $50.046 (B) was read and accepted by the council, with a 5-0 vote. The ordinance concerns the city's upcom- ing sewer upgrade project. Those within the city limits who have prob- lems with their current lines have 90 days to correct all problems. Letters were sent out to inform those to whom this applies. The project will begin in June. While some residents of Owings- ville continue to complain about loud mufflers on vehicles, the good news is that something is being done about those complaints. The council re- viewed KRS 189.140, a law con- cerning muffler noise regulation. The law is stated as follows: (1) Every motor vehicle with an internal-combustion, steam or air motor shall be equipped with a suit- able and efficient muffier. No person while on a highway shall operate a motor vehicle with the muffler cut out or removed. No cutout shall be so arranged or connected as to per- mit its operation or control by the driver of any motor vehicle while in position for driving. (2) No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motor vehicle or an off highway vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle. The original muffler shall comply with all of the noise require- ments of KRS Chapter 224 and reg- ulations promulgated pursuant thereto. No person shall operate a motor vehicle with an exhaust sys- tem so modified. After consideration, the council decided that no clarifications are needed and that the law is well-stat- ed as is. It is now and will continue to be enforced. The first reading of Ordinance #2-2003, an ordinance creating a franchise for a cable television sys- tem within the confines of the City of Owingsville was heard by the coun- cil and was accepted unanimously. After much discussion, two ordi- nances were tabled by council mem- bers so they could be further re- viewed. One concerned installation of water service lines and meters and the other concerned imposing guide- Following the action--Royable Wright runs down the court, following the action, during last year's 16th region tourna- ment, held at Morehead State University.

The mayor is first in line, followed by the vice-mayor Norman Crouch and then council member Doug Jones, and council member Bob Ray. The vote to accept this resolution was 5-0. The last item of business was brought up by Ray. Kentucky Utili- ties will be taking down electrical wire and replacing it with new, free of charge. The city installed the wrong wire by mistake. Ray sug- gested that the city donate the wire they are taking down, which is per- fectly good, to the 4-H Diamond Back Saddle Club. The motion car- ried 5-0.
