While no new ordinances were passed there was no shortage of discussion as Kenton City Council gathered for their thirteenth regular session Monday night. Most of that discussion revolved around ordinance no. 21-016 which would create numerous changes to current Kenton codified ordinances pertaining to safety, sanitation, and health. These changes haven’t come without some concern, an active member of the community Rev. Dave Kiper voiced a few of his concerns to council. While much was discussed about potential problems with the ordinance, including the elderly and less fortunate not being able to maintain properties properly, the solution seemed to be community pride and helping thy neighbour. Council thanked Rev. Kiper for voicing his concerns and urged more citizens to do the same. If you would like to share any comments or concerns the next council meeting will be held July 26th at 7PM.
City Auditor Brian Hattery also spoke briefly and expressed great gratitude to Public Safety Director Cindy Murray for going above and beyond in her help of his office while they are short staffed. Hattery would also give a shoutout to Mayor Lynn Webb and Murray once again for their efforts in community upkeep during last week’s swim meet.
While no city ordinances were created or changed this meeting seemed meaningful and this author left feeling pride and a sense of gratitude towards the people working so hard to improve our city. We would all like to see a better, more beautiful Kenton and to get that we all have to do our part.
