  • Well-defined rules vital to unification debate

    Beginning this week, Hardin County United will make formal presentations to local governments on the subject of unification. The informal organization’s volunteer members also have about two dozen presentations scheduled before civic clubs and community organizations.

    The challenge before them is significant. It was sharply defined when the Radcliff City Council took a stand against the idea before an appointment could be scheduled for a formal presentation.

    It appears unity can be a divisive topic.

  • Elizabethtown property tax rate could remain stable

    If Finance Director Steve Park has his way, Elizabethtown’s real property tax rates will remain the same this year.

    Park on Monday approached Elizabethtown City Council and recommended it set this year’s rate at 11.6 cents per $100 of assessed value.

    The rate, if approved, would remain in line with the rate approved for the last several years.

    Park said the amount of revenue produced from the rate will be slightly below budget, but he believes the city can easily recoup the money through the year.
