On June 22, 2012 the Kentucky State Police Post 8 held their annual Golf Scramble at Eagle Trace Golf Course that benefited Trooper Island. Twenty-two teams en- joyed the perfect weather. Capt. Bobby Murray, Post 8 Commander would like to thank all the sponsors, supporters and volun- teers. Hole Sponsors included the Montgomery County Tractor Sales, G & R Min- ing, Northcutt & Sons Funeral Home, Cave Run Yamaha Dealership, Auto Zone, Big Store Sales, Great Outdoor Power, Hamilton Inc, Family Dollar, Morehead-Rowan County EDC, and Senator Walter Blevins. Stephanie Johnson, Christa Bledsoe and Kim Silvy, who are members of the Morehead State Uni- versity Faculty, assisted in the registration of the teams and also served lunch. MSU Baccalaure- ate Students, who were also on hand to serve re- freshments and lunch, was Savanna Keeton, Brit- tany Short, Chelsea Wag- ner, Cairee Fannin, Noelle Lawmakers looking at efforts to study state's special districts State lawmakers heard about the State Auditor of Public Accounts' ef- forts to examine special districts that levy taxes or fees in hopes of boost- ing the accountability of those entities during last week's meeting of the In- terim Joint Committee on Local Government. By the end of this year, State Auditor Adam Edel- en said his office should have an inventory of just how many special dis- tricts there are in the state (he estimates there could be as many as 1,800) and how much tax revenue these special districts-- which may provide fund- ing for services like fire protection, public health, library services, flood control, etc.--handle .each year. The informa- tion will be then placed online to make the dis- tricts more accountable to the public, Edelen said. The information gath- ered by the State Audi- tor's office will also be used to make recom- mendations for possible legislative action during the 2012 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly, Edelen said. Interim Joint Committee on Local Government Co- Chair Sen. Damon Thay- er, R-Georgetown, said he plans to sponsor legisla- tion concerning special districts for consideration in 2013. Thayer said his com- mittee and the State Audi- tor's office are continuing a dialogue that, as Edelen commented, will help "separate the wheat from the chaff' as far as special districts are concerned. "The taxpayers are now focused on this and, first of all, I would say to the employees and board members of the special districts exactly what the Auditor said at the begin- ning (of this meeting): If rou are doing your job appropriately and being good stewards of the tax- payers' money, you have nothing to fear from the Auditor's effort, or any legislation that this Gen- eral Assembly may con- sider," Thayer said. It was just a few months ago that the 2012 Ken- tucky General Assembly passed House Concur- rent Resolution 53, spon- sored by Rep. Reginald Meeks, D-Louisville, and Interim Joint Committee an Local Government Co- Chair Rep. Steve Riggs, D-Louisville. That legis- lation directs the Interim loint Committee on Lo- cal Government to study special districts during the 2012 legislative in- terim, which ends this December. The resolu- tion was adopted follow- hag recent government and quasi-governmental agency audits conducted by Edelen's office. Edelen told the commit- tee that his office thinks Kentucky has between 1,000 and 1,800 special districts with total tax revenue of $500,000 to $1 billion passing through those districts annually. "Based on those as- sumptions, you'd have $100 million in taxpayer money floating through a system every year in a way in which the tax- payers can't properly ac- count for (it)," he told lawmakers. Once the inventory is complete, Edelen said state lawmakers and all Kentucky taxpayers will know moreabout what he called the "most preva- lent form of government in Kentucky", which is what he said special dis- tricts are. Rep. Tom McKee, D- Cynthiana, said he appre- ciates those who serve on special district boards in his area because they volunteer their time to serve. "I've got some great special districts and I thank all the people who serve because they serve without pay... To get some kind of benchmark will be your challenge," he told Edelen. Edelen said he plans to set the bar %ery high." The committee heard from members of some local fire districts and the Kentucky Fire Commis- sion, whose legislative di- rector Michael "Howdy" Kurtsinger said he feels fire taxing districts "are doing what is required" under state law. It also heard from Kentucky Association of Coun- ties (KACo) President Elect and Larue County Judge Executive Tommy Turner, who said KACo endorses both Edelen's initiative and HCR 53 passed during the 2012 Regular Session. "We are hopeful that the majority of (special districts) will be found to be in full compliance, act- ing in a responsible and efficient manner," said Turner. KACo is also willing, said Turner, to collaborate with state of- ficials on a local govern- ment tax reform package "and would include these districts in that disctis -: sion," he said.
