Councillor Parson clarifies Bill Bailey blue lights position

June Parson writes:
Ed, I did not make a motion to remove the blue lights from Bill Bailey's car. I brought up for discussion the removal of the blue lights from the Code Enforcement Officer's vehicle, as I do not consider this position to be an emergency position and according to the KRS non emergency vehicles are prohibited from running with blue lights. However, as you also heard, our legal council says it is because he does traffic control and escorts. I did make a motion to install speed bumps on Bowen and Page Street in response to a petition that had previously been submitted, that died for lack of a second.

I know these discussions may seem minor, but I do appreciate your positive coverage of the council meetings. -June
