    The new administration’s priorities are crime deterrence and public safety within his jurisdiction, while curbing drug addiction.

    And King plans to ask commissioners to approve new initiatives for youth, adults and senior citizens at the Feb. 4 meeting, which will include ways to involve community members to make the city a better place and to keep kids out of trouble.

  • Code enforcement working, despite limited resources

    Henry County’s incorporated cities have adopted nuisance ordinances to force homeowners to get rid of trash, junk cars, overgrown lawns and uncontrolled weeds, scrap metal and to fix structural issues. Also, Campbellsburg and New Castle amended their ordinances in 2018.

    City councils and commissions say they deal with code enforcement as best they can, limited by budgets and personnel.

    Eminence is trying to hire a code enforcement officer, but in the meantime, Mayor Drane Stephens performs that task, then hands complaints off to Eminence Police Department.
