After an unusually slow week for new last week episode 27 of the Monitor Podcast is in the air!
This week we discuss the special-called fiscal court meeting which ended in a deal being made between Judge Executive David Johnston and Fourth District Magistrate Larry Keown to get a first reading of the 2018/19 budget passed after two 3-3 deadlocked votes. One vote of which was during the meeting itself.
From there, U.S. Rep. James Comer’s office hours coming up at the Community Center in Hartford, the Jerusalem Ridge Festival Lineup was announced, and Community Contributor Heather Blair came up with a concept of the “backyard bucket list” in a piece she wrote this week.
We also have a short discussion of the sudden resignation of Hartford Council member Edwina Sheffield this week and the announcement from Hartford Mayor George Chinn that he is withdrawing his name from the upcoming election for the mayor’s seat in November. Check out the Ohio County Monitor on Monday for the full story.
