Happy New Year! Do you have a wish list for the New Year yet?

As 2016 gets started, our new governor, Representative Jim Stewart, Senator Robert Stivers and all the other members of the new legislature are now at work up in Frankfort. And as we move into 2016, here are the things I would put on the “Wish List” for Knox County. See if you agree with these:

Fund the plans for the Knox Jail. Knox County got state approval for a new jail almost a year ago. But, the state promised funding for architect fees plans and engineering has not showed up! Our county is still spending $30,000 to $50,000 tax dollars per month in transportation, handling and other fees that would go away if we had a new jail. Hey Frankfort, pay for our plans as promised. Help us get that project going!
