Carroll County Commission To Vote on Lake Funding

Posted

HUNTINGDON — Carroll County commissioners will vote on a resolution to limit the amount of ‘growth’ funds it grants to the Carroll County Watershed Authority when they meet Monday, April 5, 7 p.m. at the Civic Center.

The Watershed Authority is the independent government entity that owns and operates the Carroll County 1000-Acre Recreation Lake, located in the Leach Community, just outside of Huntingdon.

The resolution calls for the county not to exceed $50,000 in growth funds to the Watershed Authority. The resolution essentially caps the funds of a 2008 resolution, which gifted the tax revenues generated from the development of real estate in the lake planned growth area. The funding will continue for 10 years, if the resolution is approved.

A separate wheel tax, assessed at $10 per registered vehicle in the county, remains at $10 annually and goes to the lake. That generates approximately $240,000 to $250,000 annually and is to end once it pays 30 percent of the development cost of the lake.

In other items on the agenda, Tee-Jay Glidwell of the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse will address the Commission.

Three appointments are on the agenda. Willie Huffman of McKenzie and Lana Suite of McLemoresville are recommended to serve on the Carroll County Industrial Development Board. If approved, they will replace Walter Butler and Joe Smothers, both of Huntingdon, who both asked not to be reappointed.

Linda Meek of McKenzie is recommended for reappointment to the Carroll County Agricultural Extension Board.
