County can now fix more roads

Decision applies to subdivisions that aren't making it

By Lindsey Erdody Published:

After a complaint about a pothole in a subdivision more than two years ago, Fiscal Court now has the authority to fix it.

Planning Director Robert Hewitt created a resolution amending the county’s subdivision regulations so Fiscal Court can approve work on subdivision roads that aren’t already in the road system.

“It’s for subdivisions that have failed for some reason or another,” Judge-Executive Ted Collins said.

The complaint from two years ago came from a resident of the Village at Duckers Lake Subdivision, but without having the road in the system, Fiscal Court couldn’t do anything.

Since then, Hewitt drafted a resolution, and it was unanimously passed Friday to allow Fiscal Court to accept these roads into the system when needed.

The resolution only applies to areas with a density of at least 10 residences or 10 businesses.

Village Drive, Greenway Boulevard, Hope Drive, Canyon Oaks Drive and Robert M. Green Boulevard, all within the Village at Duckers Lake Subdivision, are now officially in the county road system.

Also on Friday, the court approved resurfacing on Hoover Boulevard, Owenton Road and Browns Lane.

Both road projects are awaiting approval from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The court also awarded bids for a new tanker/pump for the Franklin County Fire Department, two mowers for Lakeview Park and a self-contained leaf vacuum for the Franklin County Road Department at the meeting on Friday.

  • I am glad we finally got some funding for our roads but could we use SOME of it for the main roads around Frankfort. These are the roads that we travel everyday to get to work and shop. Our main roads are awful and it is taking a toil on our vehicles.
