Copeland said that he fixed that problem.

Ward commented, “We had a louver door [problem]”

Copeland answered, “That’s another thing.”

County Clerk Kevin Engler asked Ward, “He’s giving you a four-month warranty, what do you want?”

“The additional things shouldn’t be that much more, if you could handle that…,” Ward said.

Copeland answered back, “Ok, if you want to put on a set of tires and fix the radio on that truck you’re giving me.”

In other business, the commission agreed to allow the city of Park Hills to demolish a small building located at 188 Reuter Street. The county owns the property due to a sale on back taxes. The city had deemed the building a safety hazard.

Amber Menjoulet, audit manager, sought approval from the commission to apply for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant and agreement. The grant will be used for various law enforcement programs.

“This is a pass-through grant, which means that no cost is incurred by the county,” she said. “The application is due May 6.”

The commission also gave approval to the developer of Lost Creek Subdivision to build an extension of Rice Road in Desloge to city specifications. The undeveloped right-of-way is approximately 137 feet and belongs to the county.
