Kenton City Council’s 2nd Regular Session of 2023

Written by on January 23, 2023

Kenton city council met for their 2nd regular session Monday evening. During the proceedings we learned the city will not be accepting income tax filings until January 27th as that is the date the new e-filing software will be ready. We also learned the legislation, codes and regulations committee is moving forward with solar legislation but nothing has been set in stone yet. Councilwoman Sue Fox Buroker shared the City Tree Commission’s plan to plant 20 new trees in 2023.

Ordinance 23-002 was passed. This bit of legislation sees $30,000 go to city hall capital outlay which was previously appropriated in 2022 but was not used. $3,000 for income tax office supplies, this item is for postcards that will be sent out to inform taxpayers why they will not be receiving income tax forms and to receive their e-file income tax account numbers. Finally, $12,000 for street light maintenance after a semi caused damage to a traffic light at Detroit and Franklin streets. Insurance will reimburse the city for this cost.

In closing comments Safety Service Director Cindy Murray had a reminder that not all city side streets will be salted so drive safely.
