THE CASEY COUNTY FISCAL COURT MET IN REGULAR SESSION MONDAY.
 
PRIOR TO THE REGULAR BUSINESS, TWO CITIZENS ADDRESSED THE COURT SEEKING HELP WITH A SO-CALLED NEIGHBORHOOD TERRORIST.  THEY STATED CALLING THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE NUMEROUS TIMES, AND THOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL RUN-INS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, THE ACCUSED PERSON HAS YET TO STOP THE HARRASSMENT. THEY TOLD THE COURT THIS PERSON HAS THREATENED THE LIVES OF AT LEAST TWO INDIVIDUALS, AND EVEN FIRED ON OFFICERS. COUNTY JUDGE EXECUTIVE, RANDY DIAL, HEARD OUT THE COMPLAINTS, HOWEVER TOLD THE TWO THAT THE FISCAL COURT HAS NO AUTHORITY OVER THE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE. THE CITIZENS ALSO STATED SOME DISSATISFACTION WITH THE COUNTY DISPATCH SERVICE AND PROVIDED SOME DOCUMENTATION TO THE COURT. NO ACTION WAS TAKEN, HOWEVER, JUDGE DIAL ASSURED THEM HE WOULD LOOK INTO THE MATTER.
 
THE COURT WILL SOON BE ACCEPTING YEARLY BIDS.
 
JUDGE EXECUTIVE RANDY DIAL SAID THE COURT RECEIVED ONLY ONE BID ON DUMP TRUCKS. THE BID, FROM WORLD-WIDE EQUIPMENT, WAS ACCEPTED IN THE AMOUNT OF NEARLY $142,000 PER TRUCK, FOR THREE TRUCKS. SOME 2018 TRUCKS, ALONG WITH A '98 CHEVY 4X4, AND A '03 FORD 4X4, WERE DECLARED SURPLUS PROPERTY AND WILL BE SOLD IN JUNE.
 
SEVERAL COUNTY TRUCKS WERE DECLARED SURPLUS AND WILL BE SOLD IN JUNE.
 
A FIRST READING OF THE PROPOSED 2019 FISCAL BUDGET WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE NEXT REGULAR FISCAL MEETING, SCHEDULED FOR MAY 7TH.
