The Dec. 5th meeting was a great success thanks to the continued support of South Kenton Residents. Piner Baptist’s meeting hall had standing room only with more than 60 residents and committed county/state officials.  Judge Knochelmann gave us an update on county events. On the state level, Sen. Thayer reviewed important issues.  Ky. Rep. Diane St. Onge was very impressed with our committed residents. Amy Heeger introduced an update from NKy Water District and TBNK  (internet connectivity). Commissioner Beth Sewell was present and has been very active in support of these efforts. Bill Schneider chairs the roads committee and gave remarks before introducing a report from Public Works.. Dan Allen and Suzann Parker Leist gave highlights of their work towards growing economic opportunities and support for farmers. These efforts have been greatly supported by John Stanton of county administration. Kathy Donohoue reported from the zoning committee on recent updates to rural commercial regulations and future tasks that they will address from Direction 2030. Time given for individual discussion and questions was very beneficial.
